PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 23 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Arlington National Cemetery. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

Arlington National Cemetery is considered the most hallowed ground in the United States. Veterans of every one of the nation’s wars are interred there, as well as 2 presidents, a number of Supreme Court justices, and members of Congress. Its grounds are the final resting place for approx. 400,000 Americans. 3 million tourists visit the grounds annually. But it is more than a tourist attraction, it is an active cemetery conducting hundreds of burials each year.

The cemetery, which dates to the Civil War, has a long and fascinating history. It was originally the estate of a family related to George Washington, and its most prominent resident was Robert E. Lee, who called the estate home in the years just before the Civil War. The location of Lee’s mansion, on a hill overlooking WDC, was a critical strategic site at the outbreak of hostilities. The Union Army seized it, and later in the war, as a deliberate act to ensure Lee could never return, the estate was turned into a cemetery for Civil War dead.

The scene that defines Arlington National Cemetery is the Caisson Platoon of the 3rd Infantry Regiment, aka the Old Guard, the oldest infantry unit in the United States Army.They conduct one of the most solemn activities in the United States, carrying the remains of a U.S. serviceman to his or her final resting place, a task that this unit will conduct 8 times a day every day of the year.
