If you read through the whole article discussing the theft of Robert E. Lee's house you'll see they left out just one little fact about the place we call Arlington National Cemetery. The Army stole this house and property from the adopted son of George Washington. We don't have much of a track record when it comes to honoring the memory of George Washington. It took some pretty special people to honor his memory and preserve his estate at Mount Vernon.
They say that war inflames passions. I suppose it always has. 150 years ago the Union started to bury soldiers in Robert E. Lee's rose garden. We can't seem to stop.
