Abstract
Report on test excavations documenting evidence of orchards and other food crops cultivated at the site known as the Jackson Shrine (Caroline County, Virginia). The site of a plantation during the 18th and 19th centuries, and more recently, the home of a tenant farmer. Located near Fredericksburg, Va., the property became known as the Jackson Shrine following the death, 10 May 1863, of Confederate Lieutenant General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, who died of complications from pneumonia at the plantation then known as Fairfield, the home of Thomas C. Chandler in Guinea Station (also known as Guiney's Station), in the unincorporated Caroline County community of Woodford.
