Memorial Day 2010

For Memorial Weekend, I thought I would post some pictures from my October trip. In October, I went on a college road trip with my son. Mostly we spent time looking at colleges, many of them. He was kind enough to give me a little spare time to visit some of the sites. The one ting he wanted to see was Mount Vernon, which we did. The one thing I wanted to see was Arlington National Cemetery, we saw this also.

No matter how you look at the stones, they are in a line.

Within the past few days, I have found my ancestor that fought in the Revolution. I have requested a look up from the DAR to confirm. A special thanks to Nancy who has helped with this. I really appreciate it.
