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.

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
