  If you follow General Winder Road (left off of route 15 just north of the signs above) for about one-fourth of a mile, you see this fenced-in marker, which indicates that near here, Stonewall Jackson used his scabbard (he was unable to remove his rusted-in sword from it) to rally his troops after they were overrun by a Union flanking movement.
