Long Description:
The plaque says, "Robert E. Lee, a soldier and scholar, once lived at Arlington House and managed the plantation on this land. After Lee took command of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, the Union Army seized his home. Union soldiers buried their casualties of war on these grounds. Enslaved families endured their struggle for freedom here. A controversial figure today, Lee worked to reunify the country after the American Civil War. The National Park Service welcomes you to explore this place of peace and conflict."
