Geocache Description:

"Stonewall" Jackson Shrine. This is where he died.

Fourth in a series of little known Civil War sites around Virginia. Having been accidentally shot by his own troops after his famously successful flanking maneuver during the Battle of Chancellorsville, Jackson was transferred here by ambulance to begin recovery. Pneumonia would soon take its toll instead. Aware that his death was imminent, and happy it was a Sunday, Jackson died, May 10, 1863. Jackson's chief surgeon, Dr. Hunter McGuire made the following record of Jackson's last words:

"A few moments before he died he cried out in his delirium, 'Order A.P. Hill to prepare for action! pass the infantry to the front rapidly! tell Major Hawks' -- then stopped, leaving the sentence unfinished. Presently a smile of ineffable sweetness spread itself over his pale face, and he said quietly, and with an expression, as if of relief, 'Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees.'"
