— Childhood Home of General Richard S. Ewell —

Nearby is the site of Stony Lonesome, childhood home of one of the Confederacy's most distinguished generals. Richard S. Ewell left this farm in 1836 to enter West Point. Graduating in 1840, Lieutenant Ewell served with the 1st U.S. Dragoons on the western frontier and fought with distinction in the Mexican War. When the Civil War began, Ewell joined the Confederacy and was commissioned a Colonel. Slightly wounded in action at Fairfax Courthouse on June 1, 1861, Ewell won a promotion to Brigadier General before First Manassas. "Old Baldy," as he became known, commanded a division under Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley, Seven Days, and Second Manassas campaigns until severely wounded on August 28, 1862, necessitating amputation of his left leg. Prompoted to Lieutenant General after Jackson's death in May 1863, Ewell commanded the Army of Northern Virginia's II Corps at Gettysburg, Bristoe Station, the Wilderness and Spotsylvania. His capture at Sailor's Creek in April 1865 ended his military service. After the war, Ewell retired to his wife's Tennessee farm, dying there in 1872.
