As the Civil War unfolded, Murfreesboro became hotly contested by Confederate and Union forces. Both sides occupied the town for significant periods, with power changing hands as the fighting raged. Punctuated by events like Nathan Bedford Forrest's raid on Union forces in July 1862, Jefferson Davis's visit and the wedding of General John Hunt Morgan and Martha Ready, wartime Murfreesboro saw no shortage of drama. As combat escalated, the bloody Battle of Stones River and the Nashville Campaign brought more destruction. Yet at war's end, the resilient locals remained and rebuilt their town from the rubble. Authors and Civil War historians Michael Bradley and Shirley Farris Jones track the tumult of the proceedings to recount the compelling story of Murfreesboro during the Civil War.

Shirley Farris Jones is a lifelong resident of Murfreesboro. A graduate of Knox Business College, she is a Civil War historian and community activist, retired from Middle Tennessee State University, where she had been a staff member for more than thirty years. Shirley is a founding member of the Middle Tennessee Civil War Round Table and a former president of the Rutherford County Historical Society, the Rutherford County Chapter of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities, the Friends of Stones River National Battlefield and the Martha Ready Morgan Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Review:

"The book covers Murfreesboro from the secession of Tennessee from the union to just after the end of the Civil War, just in time for the war's sesquicentennial." --The Daily News Journal
