It was really fun going to see Stonewall Jackson's arm. If you use a GPS, you will arrive at an unmarked, dead end street. YOU ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE! Travel a little further down the road to a big sign marked "Ellwood." Then you are in the right place. The manor doesn't open until June, but you can still... More

As soon as I read about the grave of Stonewall Jackson's arm, I knew that I had to see it. After going to the Museum at the Battle of Chancellorsville, I had to see it even more! That being said, make sure you know where it is and make sure you know where you're going and make sure it's open... More

This is a "tombstone" in the middle of a field at Manassas Battlefield. A little bit of a head-scratcher at first, but if you get the tour guide info, it makes a bit more sense (but not much!). Otherwise, Manassas Battlefield is another must-see on the battle stops in northern Va, with a huge open field (that's well-groomed) that you... More

Had to visit this place - love the quirkiness of it. If you use a GPS to get you there and you end up at a small cemetery on a dead end road just off the highway, get back on the highway and go a little further along until you see the sign for the estate and then turn left.... More

How many people can actually say they have seen the burial site of just an arm. Ellwood Manor offers this opportunity. Visit the manor and learn the historical elements of this farm. Docent's tell the fascinating story of Ellwood and how Stonewall Jackson's arm came to be buried there. Such a peaceful place. Admission if free.

I love all things Civil War and all things weird. So the opportunity to visit the grave site of an ARM? Oh, yeah. I'm in. 'Twas a bit of a hike as the house (and its parking lot) were not open when we arrived, but the grounds are lovely and we enjoyed the walk. And now I can say I've... More

A must find. Goto the Vistor Center and ask for directions to the gravestone of Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson's arm. It is very easy to find and a great story

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
