This song, written in 2006 by Andy Revkin, tells the story of Arlington National Cemetery from its creation in 1864, on land taken from General Robert E. Lee, to its uncertain future (uncertain given that the national burial ground is slowly running out of room).

The official site for the cemetery is: http://arlingtoncemetery.org

Here's a 2006 New York Times video report built around the song: http://nyti.ms/KMhwMX

A version recorded by the Hudson Valley band Uncle Wade is here: http://nyti.ms/MQmT3P
