Looking over the Potomac River back to Georgetown. The bridge you see is the Francis Scott Key Bridge.
You can see the Washington Monument in the background of this picture from a hill in Arlington National Cemetery, which contains the graves of over 200,000 American soldiers. Counting family members there are about 275,000 graves. This land was formerly the estate of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. It was seized by the government for delinquent taxes and converted into a cemetery.
The last photo I am on my way to the grave of President John F. Kennedy. The building at the top is the Arlington House, known today as the Robert E. Lee Memorial.
