What Others Are Saying

Ernest B. Furgurson, author of Freedom Rising: Washington in the Civil War

“Most Americans, especially most historians, think they know all about Arlington Cemetery. They respect what it represents, and revere the heroes resting there. But only Robert Poole has brought to life all the historic figures, from privates to presidents, who made this national shrine and populate its rolling hills. On Hallowed Ground is a memorable combination of historical research, firsthand reporting, and sensitive writing—a definitive work that should last as long as the eternal flame at John Kennedy’s grave site.”
