On a working farm, down a long, fenced in driveway stands a little burial plot for Stonewall Jackson's arm, that the surgeons cut off of him after he was wounded by his own men.

Through the years, we have been to the Chancellorsville Battlefield where Stonewall Jackson was shot, the Stonewall Jackson Shrine where he died and Jackson's home and grave in Lexington, but we have somehow missed the grave of Stonewall Jackson's arm. To remedy this omission, we made a stop there on a recent cold winter's day. The directions from Roadside America... More

We went here just to see the final resting site of Stonewall Jackson's arm. I figured it would be something different. There was a volunteer working and he was very informative and friendly. The hose was closed for the winter so we learned about the cemetery, trees and other outdoor things. The volunteer that took the time to chat with... More

The view from their memorial was beautiful. A little difficult to get up close and personal with the memorial because of the heavy fencing around the site. If you like hanging out and meetin the residents of old cemeteries,this is a great one.

Any Civil War Buff must stop here. This is worth a stop. After finishing here you must go to where Jackson died. It is all too fitting.

This out of the way spot is a must for Jackson devotees. On the Lacy (Elwood) House property, owned and operated by the National Park System, it is a part of the Wilderness Battlefield Park. The walk to the site is not bad, and it will open up and give you a view across Route 3 to where Jackson's arm... More

A pleasant drive south on Constitution Highway leads to the tranquil location of the Elwood house, which played a major part in the Battle of the Wilderness. Leading down a short path, the visitor comes upon a family burying plot, the highlight of which is a tombstone bearing the inscription, "The Arm of Stonewall Jackson." The home is owned by... More

Summer 2005 we were driving in rural Virginia on vacation when a brown sign stating "House where Stonewall Jackson Died" was on the side of the road. I quickly cut into the driveway saying "should we stop?" to the backseat chorus of "Noooooo!" Since we were committed to the turn, I dragged everyone through the house where Stonewall Jackson died.... More

Ellwood house tour was good, as we had a very interesting docent. Don't go just to see the burial site of Stoney J's arm.

A very well kept period home used by Union Army as a hospital but where Stonewall Jackson was brought after he was wounded by friendly fire and where his arm was amputated and subsequently buried there.. It has been in continuous use thus well preserved. Tours of the grounds and cemetery and interior of the home were offered by enthusiastic... More
