About Ellwood Plantation

The Ellwood Plantation (Ellwood Cemetery) is the site of General Stonewall Jackson's arm, which was buried there after he was wounded in the Battle of Chancellorsville.

After being accidentally shot in darkness by fellow Confederates, Jackson's doctor Hunter Macguire amputated his left arm. It was placed in a grave in the Ellwood family cemetery and remains there to this day.

Jackson died a few days later from complications resulting from his wounds. He is buried in the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery in Lexington, Virginia.
