Mystery in the Wilderness: Where is Stonewall’s Arm?

CWTApr13-cover72dpiIn case you haven’t seen it yet, check out the April 2013 issue of Civil War Times, which asks on its cover, “Where is Stonewall’s Arm?” ECW co-founder Chris Mackowski penned the article, titled “Mystery in the Wilderness,” which chronicles the strange tale of Stonewall Jackson’s amputated arm. After Jackson was accidentally shot by his own men at the Battle of Chancellorsville, surgeons amputated the arm—and as Jackson began a trip that would take him first to Guiney Station and then across the river to rest under the shade of the trees, his arm began a long, strange trip of its own through history.

The issue’s other Chancellorsville coverage includes an article by Robert K. Krick, “‘The Awfullest Fire I was Ever Under Yet,'” which features “never-before published letters by a young 16th North Carolina infantryman.”
