It was so long ago that there was no place to park, the farmhouse was empty and barren and hadn't begun to be renovated and there was no map with directions to find what we were looking for. We asked a park ranger at the Chancellorsville visitor's center. "How do we find the arm?" He knew what we were talking... More

I am a history buff, and we came to the grave to see the arm. But the grave was chipped, you could hardly read the writing, and on the tour of Ellwood, which is the house it I located at, the guide said it may be there or not, they are not sure. It was okay. If you like to... More

When you drive the 20 mile from where General Jackson was shot to where his arm was amputated and you remember he was in a horse drawn ambulance, you realize that the evacuation probably substantially contributed to his demise. Furthermore, I understand, according to our expert guide, when he was shot and the commotion commenced on the Confederate line, the... More

Although a little out of the way, it is a very interesting stop. It is operated jointly between the National Park Service & the Friends of Fredericksburg Area Battlefield. No fee but donations are appreciated. Ellwood was the home of the Lacy family and during the Civil War served as a field hospital for both the Union and Confederate forces... More

If you are a history buff or if you have children and you want them to experience some history. I highly recommend this. Stonewall Jackson was part of history that I learned in school.

Was driving the inter-state and saw the state sign indicating the Jackson monument. I did miss the cutoff and had to drive on further and pull a U-turn. Once off the highway there was signage indicating road construction and to follow the detour signs. We gave up after a couple more dead ends and a lack of clear signage. Disappointed... More

Having visited Chancellors Battlefield and the Museum, they told us about this place so we had to see it. We googled the address, plotted into our GPS and still had a difficult time finding it. The manor house was not busy the day we were there so it we took our time and it was interesting listening about the story... More

If you are in Fredericksburg then Chancellorsville and the Cherry plantation are a must see. Restoration of the mansion was well along the way last time I was there and the scenery is beautiful.

Liked the idea even if it was creepy Everyone that went down to see the site came running back because of a big black snake hanging out. Apparently Stonewall's arm has the only marker in this family cemetery

But, the story is interesting. You sort of have to be looking for this place to find it though. It was not listed on our map. Ellwood was very nice and they are doing a good job restoring it. But, down the hill from the house is "the arm" grave.
