Photographer: Stuart Johnson, NPS.

From time to time park personnel at Stones River National Battlefield turn to controlled burns to remove non-native vegetation from the battlefield. During the recent three-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend park crews burned 52 acres. This photo shows flames burning where interpreters explain the role of the Chicago Board of Trade Battery in the Battle of Stones River.
