Robert E Lee House

Arlington Cemetery

The building has an unmatched view of Washington DC from high atop a hill in Arlington, Virginia.



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 Confederate forces against the US Army at the time of the American Civil War.

The Union army turned the property into a burial ground for soldiers, an ironic result much noted in American history books.
