Arlington National Cemetery - Arlington, VA
624 acres alongside the Potomac River, Arlington National Cemetery was a highlight of our historical tour. TaGeez and I arrived early and, taking advantage of the hop-on tour trolley, pretty much covered all of it.

The Public Vault at the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C. is an early classical revival structure built 1832–34 with funds appropriated by the United States Congress to store the bodies of government officials and members of the public before burial. About 4,600 individuals were temporarily interred in the vault, including three U.S. Presidents, First Lady Dolly Madison, and sixteen congressmen who died while serving in office. (Wikipedia)The Congressional Cemetery is called "The Congressional Cemetery" because of so many members of Congress are buried here. Many are commemorated by these 4-sided markers throughout the grounds.
