The surgical set used to amputate General Stonewall Jackson's arm changed hands several times before being donated to The Country Doctor Museum in Bailey, North Carolina. One of Jackson's surgeons, Dr. Matthew Moore Butler, had the responsibility of preserving the instruments and bringing them home to Bristol, Tennessee. The instruments had been placed in a barrel filled with hot wax and were brought home at the end of the war. Roberts recounts how the instruments arrived at the Country Doctor Museum.
