Quite ways off I-95 all that is here is a small house that they hauled 'ole Stonewall off to after he was shot, so all he did here was died. You get to see a few original artifacts and the bed itself but ... uh ... a bit creepy. Nice NPS Ranger on site, gotta be one of the dullest... More

I visited and toured some Civil War battlefields that are part of the NPS "Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields. My fourth stop was At the Stonewall Jackson Shrine at Guinea Station. A small farm house next to the railroad where Jackson was to rest before being transferred to Richmond. It is here where he died of pneumonia. There are three... More

We have passed the signs for this park on I95 for years and we finally stopped today. This is the house where Stonewall Jackson died in 1863. There was a ranger on duty who gave us a great rundown on the historical events which make this spot significant. The park is pretty much the house so it won't take long... More

This place is off the beaten path (about 5 miles from I-95) but worth the detour. This house is where Stonewall Jackson died following friendly fire nearby. The house is preserved and includes some original items. Your visit will be short, but you'll learn a lot.

I have been a Civil War buff and Stonewall Jackson fan since I was in middle school. I got to see his home and grave in Lexington, VA when i was much younger. But this October I scheduled a day trip to check out the Battlefield of Chancellorsville and the Jackson Shrine, which is the small house he died in... More

In beautiful quite serene area about 5 miles off the interstate. Worth a visit. The room where Jackson died is almost as it was the day he died down to the clock which is still keeping time. The guide on duty was excellent and gave detailed and excellent information on the site. Highly recommended.

When you see the signs off 95 for the Stonewall Jackson Shrine, realize that it is about 5 miles off the exit. Once you get there, the signs don't really call out that the small white building is where Jackson died. As small as it is, there was a National Park Service Ranger who was there to provide details and... More

As routine travelers of Route 95, we often see the highway sign for The Stonewall Jackson Shrine but never had the time to make a stop. Fortunately, we did pay a visit on our last journey and we were glad we did. In need of a driving break we were pleasantly surprised by this remote park attraction not too far... More

Fingers down the spine experience. This is the site of Stonewall Jackson's death. The original house has gone, but the office building where Stonewall Jackson was taken after being injured is intact. The Ranger on duty was fabulous. He detailed the few days between Stonewall Jackson's injury and death in great depth and huge enthusiasm. Listening to him while looking... More

I've visited the Stonewall Jackson shrine several times and I always get cold chills. General Robert E Lee said about Jackson's death that "he had lost his right arm" and this was a serious blow to the South. This is the site where Jackson crossed over and rested under the shade of the trees. The NPS maintains this site and... More
