“Definitely visit if you're doing a Civil War tour”

Attraction details
Reviewed 2 January 2012

It sounds odd, but the location isn't far from Fredericksburg and you should stop by if you're a Civil War buff.

"Stonewall" was killed by friendly fire here. A little stone in a corner of the battlefield venerates him here. Sad that a hero of Bull Run would die at the hands of his own troops. The loss of Jackson really marked the end of the Confederacy. Lee never recovered from that loss.

This is a nice National Monument and should be visited.

We had a great time stopping here on our way to DC. The people kept it open a few minutes later for us.

Visited the area in June,2005. Gravesite is lovely ground,near a tree, and not far from the plantation house "Ellwood". There is a nice path through a garden to the site. While "Ellwood" needs work inside, the outside is in good shape and the structure is protected.

This is a great place to go when added to the other attractions in the area, especially if your a Stonewall fan. You can take the road he used for his flanking movements at Chancellorsville all the way to the site of his wounding, to the site of his amputation, to his arm burial, then for 12 miles down his ambulance road to the house he died in, including the actual bed and at least one of the blankets. I'm very glad I made this stop. When I went I had to get a parking pass at the visitor's center so make sure you check there first. Have fun.
