He died at Guinea's Station, Caroline Co. Va on the 10th inst of Pneumonia, after a short but violent illness, supervening upon the severe wound received in the battle of Chancellorsville. See: http://www.vmi.edu/archives/jackson/tjjgo30.html
At Chancellorsville, on May 2, 1863, Jackson was accidentally shot by his own troops. He lost his left arm, but it was thought that Jackson would recover. However, he died of complications eight days later. See: http://nene.essortment.com/stonewalljackso_rvfu.htm
The man often blamed for the Southern failure at Gettysburg. An amputee and a new bridegroom, Ewell faced immense military and political challenges as Stonewall Jackson's replacement after Chancellorsville.
