Recently we visited Ellwood Manor, just a 10 minute drive from our house. The main attraction is the cemetary where Stonewall Jackson’s arm was buried. There are also the grounds to walk around on and the 18th century home that served as a Confederate hospital after the Battle of Chancelorsville and as Warren’s HQ after the Battle of the Wilderness.
