Arlington National Cemetery 150th Anniversary Events

Arlington National Cemetery 150th Anniversary Events

By Media Release

The March 2014 issue of Armchair General magazine included a piece in its “Dispatches” section about Arlington National Cemetery’s 150th anniversary this year. The following media release provides dates for specific events that are planned and, in some cases, links to more information about them. It would be a good summer for a vacation to the Northern Virginia-Washington, D.C. area and take part in some of these events.
