Often confused with the Battle of Stones River, the Battle of Murfreesboro occurred nearly 6 months earlier when Forrest rode into Murfreesboro at daylight splitting his forces( 1300 troopers) to rout Federal forces and capturing Gen. Crittendon and a hord of supplies. The Courthouse has the bullet marks in the old brick where NBF freed several Confederate soldiers that were condemned to hang.
Speaker and author Dr. Michael Bradley will narrate the raid
