Virginia - Arlington National Cemetery

Arlington National Cemetery
Our nation's most hallowed ground was officially designated as a military cemetery in June 15, 1846 on the grounds of the Arlington House, once house of Robert E. Lee and occupied by Union soldiers during the Civil War.  One of the most visited places at the cemetery is the eternal flame and state marker identifying the grave of President John F. Kennedy. The sign directs also to the Tomb of Unknown, that contains the remains of unknown American soldiers from World Wars I and II the Korean Conflict and (until 1998) the Vietnam War.
