National Geographic Television & Film
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Presidents, U.S. Supreme Court Justices, and five-star military officers; astronauts and explorers; major figures in literature and medicine; Medal of Honor recipients from World War II and ordinary foot soldiers of the Civil War: all told, more than 230,000 Americans have found their final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery. On the 140th anniversary of the first burial at Arlington in May 1864, this program takes a respectful look at the history of one of America's most sacred places-and the stories of some of the many heroes who are interred there.
