We visited in August. The grounds were very nicely taken care of. The spot for Stonewalls arm was very quiet and peaceful.

If you remember your history class, General Jackson lost his arm because of friendly fire". He's buried someplace else. It's a bit of a walk to the gravesite, but it's free and interesting. I can't believe someone actually thought to give his arm a proper...More

See the grave but don’t miss the house up the hill. There are people there to tell you about the history of the house and surrounding farm.

"Weirdly interesting," as someone else noted, is an apt description. The confederate general lost an arm in battle, and it was recovered and buried here. The rest of Stonewall Jackson is buried elsewhere, in the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery in Lexington, Va., near the Virginia...More

General Jackson lost his left arm at the Battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863. His arm was buried at a cemetery located at Ellwood Manor in the Wilderness Battlefield. I work there as a volunteer and just about every time the first question people ask...More

One of the weirder stops on a tour of Civil War sites. Stonewall Jackson lost an arm, and it was recovered by someone who felt it shouldn't just go on the body parts pile, so it was given a proper burial. Worth a visit just...More

This site is accessible in the late fall and winter, but is closed with no staff on site. Rangers at the Visitor's Center of the Fredericksburg Battlefield site told us we could still visit. You park directly off the road, and walk along a gravel...More
