    Been there but know more now

    Having been upon the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery several times I am always at awe walking through the gates, but although I have some background knowledge of the area, Mr. Poole shed more light upon many aspects of these hallowed grounds that have just furthered my interest in this national landmark. Two thumbs up. Not a bad chapter in the book.

    Highly Recommended Read

    I just finished this book. I bought it this summer after my first visit to Arlington Cemetery. It really captures the majesty and tragedy of the cemetery. The book is a really enjoyable read. It contains a lot of details while at the same time, it doesn't get bogged down with them. It started with the history of the plantation and how it was chosen as the site of the Cemetery. 1 of the greatest ironies in US History and it detailed it great.

    Would really recommend this book for any history buffs. I would try to time it with a visit to Arlington Cemetery, which is a must-see for any DC visitor.

    Great. . . Simply Great

    Robert M. Poole has written a wonderful book. Reading this book is like taking a walk through Arlington itself. I highly recommend it.
    The only thing I did not like was the typeface of the book.

    As Americans, we should know some things about our national cemeteries - both good and bad. These 'gardens of stone' have so many stories to tell and Poole really captures that. Thank You, Mr. Poole.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it

    Bought this book as I have been to Arlington Cemetary a number of times but never really knew the history of it. Read it in two days and have passed it on to my kids who are extremely interested in the history as well. Arlington National Cemetary is a big part of US History and everyone will be better off understanding how this Cemetary developed and how it got to where it is today. A great read!
