Robert E Lee House Arlington Cemetery Virginia - DC

Autumn



Robert E. Lee lost possession of this home when the law was changed on property tax payments that required the owner to "appear in person" to make the payment to the local government. That of course was not possible as he was the commanding general leading the Confeserate Forces at the time during the American Civil War.

The Union army forces then turned the property into a burial ground for deceased soldiers.
