I read many of the reviews before we visited and did some online research, so hereinbelow are some tips that might help you should you decide to visit. Disclaimer: I am a history buff and a huge fan of all that is and was Stonewall Jackson, the sole purpose of this trip was to see the burial site. When we... 更多
I've visited General Sickles (another Civil War General...Union) leg.....so when I saw that there was a grave for Stonewall Jackson's Arm I knew I HAD to go pay homage!!!!! Nice location....neat piece of history!
The final resting place of Stonewall Jackson's arm is part of a National Park Service property which includes Ellwood Manor, a plantation dating to the late 18th Century with links to the Battle of the Wilderness and Battle of Chancellorsville.
