Considered one of the most brilliant generals in American military history, seeing Jackson's burial site was a must for me! When you walk into the cemetery, you will notice, to the right, the graves of General William Nelson Pendleton (General Lee's artillery commander), and the grave of his son, Alexander Swift "Sandy" Pendleton (Chief of Staff to General Jackson), who...

We found the cemetery to be very well maintained with lots of history. The guide to the famous graves at the entrance was very helpful in helping us locate the respective tombs of those we were interested in finding. We were there to see the monument to "Stonewall" Jackson but also to find the grave where one my ancestors is... More

The memorial to Stonewall Jackson is located in the middle of the local cemetery. We were able to find the plot of graves for his family, but had we not seen that information earlier at the Stonewall Jackson house, we would not have realized that the plot was there as it is not marked. Be sure to look for it!

We've seen it several times, and always remain struck by the fact that it's one of Lexington's main attractions, - mainly because of Jackson's fame and his roots in the town (a VMI professor, a Confederate General, etc.). After a tragic death in 1862, he was returned to the Lexington for burial. For some, Jackson looms as a figure as... More

Although not everyone likes to visit cemeteries, I find them interesting. Many of the headstones here are dated from the 1800's. Stonewall Jackson's tomb is in the center and easy to spot

Nice cool place to spend a hot summer morning walking through a historic cemetery. Don't forget to bring a lemon for Stonewall's grave.

Have been visiting our family in this beautiful cemetery, since the late 60's. They always maintain the grounds in such a professional manner and even have directories posted for some of the famous individuals laid to rest there. Also, with Stonewall Jackson and his family, as well as numerous grave sites from both the Revolutionary and Civil War, it is... More

WOW lots to see and learn here....amazing the people here in their final resting place. I enjoy Old cemeteries and graveyards, would have been great if there was a tour guide, or maybe I missed this, but wow. Go through the main gate and review the map which marks where to find key people and a quick sentence about each.... More

Let's get something straight. Today, when you visit Stonewall Jackson's grave in Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery in Lexington, Virginia, one of the first things you will notice are several lemons on the grass in front of Jackson's statue. It has been written countless times that Jackson loved to suck on lemons while riding with his troops. Not true. That's a... More
