On the grounds of a home open to public. After learning the story of Gen. Stonewall Jackson's injury at the Chancellorsville National Battlefield, we stopped here as part of the driving tour of Wilderness Battlefield.

We actually stopped in for a tour of Ellwood House and found out this interesting story. We visited the graveyard whereto arm was buried. There was a marker there that indicated the arm was buried there. There are no other markers in the graveyard.

The grave itself is at Ellwood Manor which is a bit of a drive from downtown (approx. 15-20 min) but worth it. The Ellwood Manor gate may be closed - it is open seasonally - but you can still park and walk the distance to...More
