This was the main reason we visited Ellwood House. After visiting other Civil War sites in the area, we had wanted to visit hear. Something off my bucket list.

One of the weirder stops on a tour of Civil War sites. Stonewall Jackson lost an arm, and it was recovered by someone who felt it shouldn't just go on the body parts pile, so it was given a proper burial. Worth a visit just...More
