A great view of history

The guides are very well informed and the Elwood house has a lot of interesting features to take in. It's a bit out of the way and very quiet, which makes it a nice place to see.

Once Stonewall Jackson's arm was amputated it was supposedly buried at this location out of respect for the great man.

I have been wanting to visit this site for many years. The first time we tried the gate was closed. It wasn't until we read about the site that we found out the grounds can be accessed if you are willing to walk. The site is located in the cemetery straight down the path, down the steps and up the... More

I stopped there out of curiosity one time and a friendly park ranger explained the story about how Stonewall Jackson's arm was buried there after it was amputated. I was quite amused by this. Virginia takes it's Civil War history very seriously!

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. By all means tour the house before exploring the rest of the property. The grave is a short walk from... More

Located on the Battle of the Wilderness field, Elwood (Lacy House) family grave location. Interesting story. The docent at the Elwood (Lacy House) does a good job of giving the history of the house and how Jackson's arm ended up where it is.

Our very 1st place of historical knowledge as a family to VA back in 2010. We got to tour the home where it all took place. What a knowledgeable staff working there at the time we visited around Christmas time.
