Chancellorsville Field Trip

Ellwood, where the grave of Stonewall Jackson's Arm is marked
Excellent weather, a fantastic tour guide in National Parks Historian Greg Mertz and a fascinatign site made the 2009 LWCRTl Spring Field trip as a resounding success. The tour focused on the Chancellorsville battlefield, plus extra trips to pertinent sites in Fredersicksburg, Old Salem Church, Ellwood in the Wilderness Battlefield Park and Guinea Station. While there has been a great deal of development in the area, the battlefield parks are a joy to visit.
