My Must-Visit Tourist Attraction


The above photo was not photo-shopped in any way... well, it might have been, but the actual thing is real (I know someone who's been there). General 'Stonewall' Jackson was a General for the Confederate army during the civil war. He was shot by his own troops by mistake and lost his left arm to amputation. He was so important that they buried his arm with an actual funeral. He died a few days before the battle of Gettysburg, leaving General Robert E. Lee to lose both the battle and the war.

That is so cool! If I visit that place, I want a shirt that says "I've seen Stonewall Jackson's arm". Hahaha. Is it alright if I put this on my blog?
