“one of two Arlington House memorials”

Arlington House is the house where two generals, George Washington and Robert E. Lee, are connected. Today in a house that is inextricably linked to one of the most famous Confederate Civil War Generals, Robert E. Lee is also the home of a family whose roots lie with the father of our country, George Washington. Arlington House is where this family lived and lost. It was also home to a large enslaved population that came from Mount Vernon to provide the existence that the family knew. The Robert E. Lee Memorial honors Lee's military and public leadership in pre- and post-Civil War America. Congress designated the memorial to recognize that "the desire and hope of Robert E. Lee for peace and unity within our Nation has come to pass." From the portico you can contemplate our nation's fate as you gaze across the river that once divided us.
