Product description

The definitive guide to America's most treasured national burial ground, its history, and its heroes.

The definitive guide to Arlington National Cemetery, America's most treasured national burial ground and the site of many of our most solemn national memories. Written in close cooperation with cemetery staff, the National Park Service, and Arlington House, Arlington National Cemetery: Shrine to America's Heroes is an excellent on-site guide for visitors. They'll learn about the people associated with this cherished place and the history of the cemetery's inception and development. Peters provides more than 100 biographies of the most celebrated admirals and generals, presidents, supreme-court justices, and astronauts, and lesser-known individuals - enlisted men, nurses, and unknown slaves -- buried there. A handy fold-out map locates their grave sites. No visitor to Arlington National Cemetery should be without this rich resource.
