Event Description

Run Historic Sites along the Run: Spotsylvania Wilderness and Chancellorsville Battlefields, portions of Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson’s actual ambulance route “Stonewall” Jackson”
On Saturday, May 2, 1863, General Thomas Jonathan (Stonewall) Jackson was wounded at the Battle of Chancellorsville. His left arm was amputated on Sunday, May 3rd and on Monday, May 4th Jackson left the Field Hospital in an ambulance. The ambulance traveled the actual route of the Stonewall Jackson Ambulance Run and arrived at the Chandler House. The route leading southwest to Todd’s Tavern and on to Spotsylvania and Guinea Station was the same route.

Grant later took to Spotsylvania in 1864. Jackson died on Sunday, May 10th. A few moments before he died, he smiled and said with apparent relief, “Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees.”
