David N. b.10-3- 1835 d.12-31-1862 U.S. Army Stone River
battle of Stones River (also called Murfreesboro)was fought as
first step in a campaigne led by Union General Rosecran and afterwards by
Union General Sherman, that ended in Sherman's March to the sea in Georgia
and split the South's defenses in half. It was not an easy path and, at at
several points, including Stone's River and the Chickamauga, more agressive
action from the Southern Army under General Bragg might have resulted in
the destruction of Rosecran's Army.
Stones River was fought just west and north of Murfreesboro, Tennessee
begining on Dec 30 1862 and ending in Bragg's pull-out to the south Jan 3
1863. This battle along with the earlier battle at Shiloh proved men of
valor on both sides would march and fight without disasterous retreating.
Battle losses at Stones River were a staggering 24,000 men out of 12,900 of
41,000 for the Union and 11,730 of 34,739 for the Confederates. The battle
began with both Armies trying to roll up their opponents left wing which
resulted in a Clockwise rotation wherein Union General Hazen's stand became
the center of rotation. Basically the Confederates were stopped from
destroying the Union Army by Hazen's stand and the adroit placement of
Artillery along the railroad leading back to Nashville. I will leave it to
wiser men to describe the battle fully and explain why the South lost the
battle. The best account, in my opinion, is "No Better Place to Die" by
Peter Cozzens. I believe that was a line spoken in true poetic style by
Irish-born Patrick Cleburne, a Conferderate General, to one of his peers
upon viewing the beautiful landscape around Murfreesboro before the battle
began, of which freeways and construction have erased much. It still is a
beautiful town and maybe Cleburne would repeat himself although, to the
west of Murfreesboro lies Franklin, Tennessee where a couple of years later
Cleburne actually did die, is perhaps "a better place to die" nowadays.
