Like this blog on Facebook

On May 11, 1864, Confederate cavalry commander J.E.B. Stuart (right) was mortally wounded at the Battle of Yellow Tavern, near Richmond, Va. The monument to mark where he was wounded and to honor his memory is now smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood.

  2. Thanks, John! A distant relative, Captain Benjamin Axtell of the Fifth Michigan Cavalry, was wounded at Yellow Tavern and later died as a prisoner.
