Yep!

As weird as it may sound, Stonewall Jackson's arm is buried about 2 miles from my house. He was shot in the arm by "friendly" fire at the battle of Chancellorsville. They amputated his arm and rushed him behind the lines to recuperate. About a week later, he died of pneumonia a few miles south of me at Guinea Station which was a train station supply line away from the fighting for Lee's Army at the time. If you ever get a chance to visit Guinea Station near Thornburg, VA and hear the lecture, it's well worth the visit.
