After touring the house, this is a must see. We went there after church on Sunday with our Cadet. I highly recommend reading the book, "Rebel Yell" by S. C. Gwynne before touting the house or visiting the grave. It gave this New Hampshire Yankee...More

This cemetery iis well worth a visit and includes the burial place of Jonathan Stonewall Jackson. It is the resting place of many other local notables, including those affiliated with VMI. Interesting.

This is a must-see for Civil War buffs, with numerous gravesites of CSA soldiers. The graves of Stonewall Jackson and his family are in the center.

Although a graduate of West Point, Jackson taught at local VMI near his resting place. On occasion people adorn Jackson's grave with lemons, his only vice.
