Arlington, VA - Nearly 400,000 American war dead, as well as many notable Americans (among them Presidents William Howard Taft and John F. Kennedy), are interred in Arlington National Cemetery, established as the nation's cemetery in 1864. While you're here, there's a good chance you might hear the clear, doleful sound of a trumpet playing taps or the sharp reports of a gun salute. There are an average of 27 funerals held every weekday.
