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

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.

You visit to Lexington, VA, can not be complete without a stop the Jackson Cemetery. When visiting his grave, note if there are lemons on his grave. Lemons were a favorite of Jackson, and admirers tend to toss a few on his grave. Walking through the older section, you will find other names in Virginia history buried here. Worth a... More

If you are going to visit the grave of Stonewall Jackson you should take a few minutes to walk around the older part of the cemetery. History goes deep and not just for the South

I love visiting cemeteries and while this had a few interesting things, I wouldn't go out of my way for it. Yeah, the citrus fruit at Jackson's grave was noteworthy. But I'd recommend any of a number of better cemeteries in the area that are much more interesting and noteworthy.

A small cemetery, ages old and with General Jackson's grave and thus the name of the place. Pay respects and remember.
