Stonewall Jackson's Arm


In 1863, a historic Civil War battle was fought near Chancellorsville. In this battle, Stonewall Jackson was accidentally shot by his troops and lost one of his arms. The arm was originally buried in Ellwood Manor nearby and was given a Christian burial at that time. It was dug up in 1864 by Union soldiers and now its exact location is unknown. A granite stone bearing the inscription, ‘Arm of Stonewall Jackson, May 3, 1863’, was set by his staff officer in 1903 but it is questionable whether the marker is accurately placed.
