My sister and I had our fantastic 3-week vacation visiting historic sites in Pennsylania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.  We saw A LOT of places including the following places related to Stonewall Jackson:  VMI, his home and final resting place in Lexington, Chancellorsville Battlefield including where he was shot, Elwood - where his arm is buried, the Shrine where he died, and we even stayed at the Harper's Ferry Inn which was his HQ and went to Bolivar Heights.  She and I have also been to Manassas, Gettysburg, and Antietam.  I'm not even close to being an expert on museums, the Civil War, or anything else for that matter but having seen what I have seen, it seems very strange that Jackson's litter would be at Gettysburg and not at Chancellorsville.  Just remembered--we also visited the Museum of the Confederacy and I think that's where it belongs.
