Arlington National Cemetery - Honoring & Remembering the Fallen

Situated across from the majestic Potomac River in Washington, DC, Arlington National Cemetery was established as the final resting place for soldiers during the Civil War. Covering 624 acres, this peaceful memorial park opened in 1864, and has served as the funerary grounds for America's fallen soldiers and notable dignitaries, including Apollo 1 astronauts, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee, and U.S. Presidents William Howard Taft and John F. Kennedy. Visitors can see several memorials, such as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, USS Maine Mast Memorial, Space Shuttle Challenger Memorial, and the Cross of Sacrifice and enjoy watching the somber Changing of the Guard ceremony every hour.
