Superintendent Stuart Johnson announced Stones River National Battlefield will offer two more presentations of Hallowed Ground: A Lantern Tour of Stones River National Cemetery during 2012.
Each scheduled evening will include two tours of up to 35 people, who will tour the cemetery by lantern light and listen to the stories of the soldiers who are buried there and their families.
The next programs will begin at 7 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18.
Reservations are required and must be made by calling 615-893-9501 starting at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13. Reservations be taken only by phone, not 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.
Visitors who will require a sign language interpreter will be exempted from the requirement to make reservations starting the Monday prior to each program. Rangers will need at least two weeks to ensure that an interpreter is on hand so people needing this service may make reservations for any
program at any time.
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 website or by calling 615-893-9501.
