Artist's Description

Union and Confederate soldiers of the American Civil War are buried together in one large vault beneath this stone in Arlington National Cemetery. The inscription reads:

“Beneath this stone repose the bones of two thousand one hundred and eleven unknown soldiers gathered after the war from the fields of Bull Run, and the route to the Rappahannock. Their remains could not be identified, but their names and deaths are recorded in the archives of their country, and its grateful citizens honor them as of their noble army of martyrs. May they rest in peace. September, A.D., 1866.”

This monument is a symbol of unity and healing after our country’s ugliest war, a war America had with itself.
