I had read that the Park Service had decided to no longer man this site. It was to be available to visitors, but the building was closed and there would be no guide. About 10-12 years ago we visited here and talked to a guide...More

The Stonewall Jackson Shrine is located outside of Fredericksburg Virginia on an old country highway. It is the location of Jackson's death after his mortal wounding at the Battle of Chancellorsville. It is staffed by the National Park Service and they historical staff is top-notch!

I drove by this site so many times and thought it was a just a statue of Jackson kinda randomly off 95. Boy was I wrong. The house has some original artifacts, including the bed frame that Jackson died on. The park ranger goes into...More

I'm interested in Civil War history, but, truthfully, based on the name I assumed that I would find a somewhat overdone "shrine" to Jackson on this site. Fortunately, that is not the case at all - this is the small house where Jackson died of...More

It doesn't take long at all to tour this house/grounds. This is where Stonewall was taken after his arm injury, only to recover and then develop pneumonia, which caused his death. The place was purchased as a tourist location, but then eventually given to the...More

Not really a "shrine" which is good since Jackson wouldn't have liked that. It's the house he died in. No statues, no monuments. The best part is the NPS ranger who can give you dedicated attention and answer your questions about Jackson and the local...More

After passing the sign on 95 for years, we finally took an hour to visit this location. It didn't look like much, so we were pleasantly surprised to have an NPS ranger open the door and invite us inside. He did a great job, for...More

I don't know what I was expecting when I drove to this NPS site, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The site is just about 5 miles/minutes from Interstate 95 and is right next to the railroad tracks. The grounds are well...More

Park Ranger gave a descriptive story about Stonewall and events that lead up to his death. They do have restrooms and water fountains. I will bring my family here if i am ever back in this area.
