I just loved this book! Arlington has always been a place of honor and respect for our military, and I was just thrilled to read this riveting account of such an amazing piece of America's history. The author made sure to include such fascinating nuggets of information about some of the people buried there, how the land was acquired, the story behind all the ceremony that goes into a military funeral, and so much more. He spent a lot of time in the second half of the book on President Kennedy's funeral and the search for unidentified service members that were to be interred in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from each of the major wars/conflicts. Overall, a must read for anyone - not just those interested in American history!
