Overview

Arlington National Cemetery spreads across the rolling hills west of the Potomac, a serene and reverent sanctuary for the presidents, soldiers, and heroes—famous and unsung alike—who lie in eternal rest among its green lawns and quiet glades. It is a roster dating back to America’s birth and including many of the foremost names in our history.

Bittersweet, breathtaking, sometimes heart-wrenching, always deeply respectful, this commemorative book guides readers gently over tree-lined slopes to share the ceremonies observed throughout the year, from the traditional wreath-laying on Memorial Day, which enshrines centuries of sacrifice, to the moving graveside services that honor individual men and women who served our country. Captured in stunning color by a select group of gifted photographers, these unforgettable images create a portrait as poignant as it is proud.

This book was purchased to help remember the vivid experience my wife and I had while visiting Arlington National Cemetery. It is a great pictorial of this national treasure.
