More Finds in Arlington Cemetery

Took a delightful walk through Arlington Cemetery with a friend this afternoon. As usual, we discovered a number of interesting sights. Among them: a memorial to the Surrender of Geronimo, a tomb of not just one unknown soldier but 2,111 of them from the battle of Bull Run and one of the coolest names ever: George W. George.

I've always known that the Robert E. Lee House overlooks Washington DC, but I learned today that buried out front is Pierre Charles L'Enfant, the architect of D.C. How fitting, right? This also means I know which direction to shake my fist when I get lost in DC, which is unfortunately, a regular occurrence.
