Olde Towne Brass at Oaklands Mansion

July 13, 2019, Oaklands Mansion, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

The time was 0400, 13 July, 1862. The place was the Maney Plantation, north of the sleepy town of Murfreesborough, Tennessee.

Colonel Nathan Bedford Forrest used surprise, daring and military genius to surprise and defeated the 9th Michigan in the shadow of Oaklands Mansion.

Stones River Battlefield Ranger Jim Lewis and living history volunteers shared the amazing story of The First Battle of Murfreesboro. The Old Towne Brass (www.otbrass.com) provided period music using authentic instruments constructed during the Civil War.
