On the morning of July 13, 1862, Col William Duffield and the 9th Michigan Infantry were camped at Oaklands and around Maneys’ Spring when Confederate Col. Nathan Bedford Forrest charged into Murfreesboro and soon overpowered the Federals camped here. By the end of the day, Col. Forrest accepted the Union surrender inside Oaklands Mansion.
To mark this occasion, encampments and living history programs will take place on the grounds of Oaklands Mansion and at the Stones River National Battlefield highlighting Confederate cavalry demonstrations, Union infantry programs and civilian perspectives. A Civil War Era Civilian Clothing Exhibit from PNJW Collections, Alpharetta, Georgia, will be displayed in Maney Hall.
