  • Soldiers fought the battle of Stones River  because the Union already had a major loss before the battle of Stones River.    Since the Union lost the battle, they retreated  for cover.    The Confederates were sure that they could  win the battle of Stones River.     As the Confederates got closer to the Union's position, the Union soldiers attacked. 
  • Results

  • The battle of Stones River was fought  near Murfreesboro, Tennessee.   The battle was also near Stones River.    The land that was fought on was   about 4,000 acres of land.   Now, the national battlefield  preservers have about 450 acres of the land.  
  • A the end of the battle, the Union won.  The Union had about 3,000 more casualties than the Confederates.  This battle was one of the worst battles of the Civil War because of how many deaths there were.  The Union had a major loss of soldiers during this war.  This would greatly affect their  performance in future battles.
