More than four million people come to Arlington National Cemetery every year to visit this somber final resting place of over 300,000 American soldiers buried since the American Revolution. Acres and acres of white headstones stretch across the green fields these brave men and women left behind in pursuit of freedom.
Maps, guidebooks, exhibits, and information services (to find grave locations) can be found at the visitor's center located at the entrance.
The Tomb of the Unknowns, also known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, is the headpiece of the cemetery. The Tomb stands atop a hill overlooking Washington, D.C. and is a monument most visitors come to see and pay their respects.
