HALLOWED GROUND LANTERN TOURS BEGIN AT STONES RIVER NATIONAL CEMETERY

May 25 2012 MURFREESBORO, Tenn.

Join a park ranger for an hour-long walk by lantern light through Stones River National Cemetery. Visitors will get a chance to appreciate the human stories housed within the cemetery by listening to soldiers and civilians share their experiences through the letters they wrote and received during the conflict.

The first program will begin at 7:30 PM on Saturday, June 2, 2012. Reservations are required and must be made by calling (615) 893-9501 starting on the Monday before each program. Reservations will not be taken in the visitor center or by e-mail. There is a limit of four tickets per caller and reservations are not transferable to another program date.

The schedule is subject to change. These programs are a part of a series of interpretive programs offered at the battlefield during the year. Stones River National Battlefield is located on the Old Nashville Highway, northwest of Murfreesboro. Additional information is available at the visitor center, at the park web site (http://www.nps.gov/stri) or by calling (615) 893-9501.
