One of the Oldest Civil War Memorials

The Union army occupied the town, January 5, 1863, three days after the battle here. They spent the winter and spring in and around Murfreesboro.

Some of Hazen's men under Lieutenant E. K. Crebbin, 9th Indiana Infantry Regiment, built of Tennessee limestone. The graves of 55 soldiers of the brigade, killed here, practically surrounded the Monument.

Colonel William B. Hazen, USA
