Centennial of the Memorial Amphitheater at Arlington National Cemetery

With Memorial Day weekend ahead of us, we join the celebration of the centennial of the Memorial Amphitheater at the Arlington National Cemetery. While the Cemetery dates to the U.S. Civil War, the Amphitheater construction began shortly before WWI and was dedicated in May of 1920.  The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is located in the Plaza of the Amphitheater. The Memorial Amphitheater and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are icons in the celebration of Memorial Day and Veterans Day. You can learn more about this centennial celebration and view a short video about Arlington National Cemetery and the Amphitheater's centennial at https://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/Memorial-Amphitheater-100
