Cemetery

What people are saying:

This is different from the Arlington National Cemetery, which was the graveyard of the soldiers who died in the Battle of Fort Stevens. During the Civil War, the Southern Army once fought Fort Stevens next to Washington, and later bought a cemetery nearby as a cemetery.
