|Shiloh and Corinth are closer than Stones River (and in more pristine shape I might add) but the Natchez Trace is a nice if slow drive to Murfreesboro. You can see the site and monument where Meriwether Lewis of Lewis & Calrk fame was murdered/committed suicide along that route. If you hit Stone's River, Franklin and Spring Hill are close enough to go there.
I've never stopped in Memphis for more than gas so I don't know what else to see or do there but I hear there is great nighlife and music on Beale St., if that is where your interests lie.
