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

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
