"Remember the Carnage of War" Arlington National Cemetery Tip by tspeegle09
Arlington National Cemetery, Washington D.C.: 95 reviews and 169 photos
Yes, Arlington National Cemetery is often packed with tourists, but I maintain that it is the most beautiful cemetery in the United States and well worth braving the crowds. You can see the grave sites of people like John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Thurgood Marshall, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, not to mention thousands upon thousands of civilians and soldiers who lost their lives in the throes of battle. Arlington National Cemetery is not a place that glorifies war, but rather a place that brings to mind the harsh reality of war -- that is, it always ends in death.
Address: Fort Meyer, VA
