Arlington National Cemetery
Arlington Cemetery used to be the Robert E Lee estate, but during the Civil War he lost it for failure to pay his taxes. The union army didn't want Lee to get it back after the war, so they made it into a cemetery. It is most interesting to walk along the path and view those that went before. From Confederate Soldiers, to Presidents and their wives, it is a most solemn experience. "And all the markers are in rows, just as good soldiers are suppose to be".
