Legend Brewing Company Presents! Strong Arm Ale

While preparing for a night attack, Confederate Lieutenant General Stonewall Jackson was hit three time by friendly crossfire. A musket round to his hand, elbow and shoulder necessitated the amputation of Jackson’s left arm. Emotionally distraught, General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, famously declared, “You have lost your left arm, but I have lost my right.” Legend has it, Jackson’s arm never made it to the Confederate burial site. Reverent Beverly Lacy, Jackson’s comrade in war, took the swaddled arm to Jackson’s plantation, Ellwood, and buried it in the family cemetery. Learn More
