Aurora Ironwood Ph. t32-9l2> Book on Arlington Cemetery Written by Retired Colonel By JERRY BAULCR ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - At each of the 130,000 graves In Arlington National Cemetery, a tiny specially placed American flag flutters for Memorial Day. People come by the hundreds to lay wreaths—at the grave of a relative, a friend or an admired hero—most among groups taking turns conducting brief ceremonies at the Tomb of the Unknown. So it has been on Memorial Day year after year, in somewhat similar fashion since 1868. Observances are held at the nation's other 84 national cemeteries, but the Memorial Day focus is on Arlington. That's because its rolling hills contain the bodies of more noted Americans than any other. They lie among the thousands who won no acclaim nor medals. A book published on this Memorial Day, "Arlington, Monument to Heroes," recites the names and deeds of many of the most illustrious dead. And it gives in up-to-date detail the history of the hallowed cemetery; taking the reader on a kind of walking tour., The book is by ;i John V. Hinkel, a native of Washington and retired Army .Reserve- colonel who has long+brto a, student of the lore pf jhicij^ This Memorial ;bay.will attract visitors to'the, grave 1 of President John 'JP. -Kennedy. Arid Hinkel has a special chapter on this most recent major addition to the cemetery. He describes the daily line of "reverent pilgrims" which flow past "like a river." Not far away Is the grave of Pvt. J. F. Kennedy, who died May 16, 1864 and one of the first buried in Arlington. Hinkel writes it is ironic that this most revered of cemeteries for American fighting men became a burial place because of an act of spite. It involved the Custis-Lee mansion which overlooks President Kennedy's grave. That imposing home and land George Washington once owned was built in 1802 by his adopted son, George Washington Parke Cus- tls, to house the first president's relics. Mary Anne Custis, his daughter, married Robert E. Lee and lived with him there until Lee went off to command the Confederate forces in the Civil War. The Army quartermaster gen- eral in 1862 was Montgomery Meigs, a former Southerner who, Hinkel writes, "kept his most violent diatribes for his own previous commander—Robert E. Lee." Meigs arranged for the "Army to take over the mansion and its sprawling acres and he set out to make uninhabitable the'house where Lee had lived. Meigs or-! dered its rose garden turned into a burial ground for soldiers. The L-shaped row of graves! Meigs ordered still remains. Soi do two other Meigs creations— the tomb of the unknown dead of the war Between the states with the remains of 2,111 un- 1 Identified Union soldiers and the Temple of Fame, a memorial to George Washington and to 11 Union leaders. Meigs himself is buried at Arlington. The government had seized the mansion and its grounds for $26,800 because neither Lee nor his wife could come forth to pay the taxes on it personally as required by law. The Supreme Court 20 years later voided thisi and Custis Lee gave title to the government for $150,000. Hinkel notes another irony of Arlington history: On the first Memorial Day In 1868—it was called Decoration Day — Southern women were curtly refused permission to place flowers on Confederate graves. Union graves were covered with flowers. "That night there was a blustery wind—and In the report, as report has it," Hinkel wrote, "the sentries found the Confederate graves burled under flow- jers blown from the Union graves." Hinkel recounts in capsule the deeds of many of the noted men and women who lie among the "serried ranks on the quiet green slopes of Arlington." He said in addition to the unknowns at the tomb, there are nearly 5,000 other unknowns burled in Arlington. The roll call of famous gen- ;erals and admirals who lie In ! Arlington stretches back through i all of America's wars to revolutionary days. Members of the bird-watching team at Cape Kennedy, Fla., strap aluminum snake guards on their legs and wade through mosquito-infested swamps to defend their record of 300 species seen in one day.
