Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Arlington, VA, United States
18 Kudos
My young cousin wrote an essay and won the honor of placing a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. I don't really frequent places like this, so I was reminded of the pomp and circumstance and solemnity of the space. I lived in DC at one point in life but by now that was 20 years ago. If you are in the area with kids I don't have to tell you it is a meaningful place to come as part of teaching American History, as I'm sure it's already on your itinerary, but there are walking tours and guides that can make it even more meaningful.
