Visited the eternal flame, Kennedys grave at Arlington Cemetary.
Arlington House, on the hill in the Cemetary. This is the house that General Lee lived in before the war. It was taken over by the North and used as headquarters and turned into the cemetary for the dead. When the war ended and Mrs Lee returned to her home, she was so upset she never returned again.
