J.E.B. Stuart Birthplace [VA]
The J.E.B. Stuart Birthplace commemorates the site where J.E.B. Stuart (1833-1864), future Confederate commander, was born. Best known for his mastery of both cavalry and reconnaissance, Stuart treasured his family lands, but was unable to retire to them due to his death on May 12th, 1864, following a wound received at the Battle of Yellow Tavern. The site presents information on his family home, destroyed by fire, and his role in the Civil War.
The site offers a self-guided walking tour with interpretive signage.
