From the Author's Notes. “Vivid, compelling, filled with rich and unexpected detail, On Hallowed Ground tells the little-understood story of Arlington National Cemetery and in the process chronicles how we have honored--and sometimes dishonored--those who gambled everything on our behalf. Robert M. Poole is a fine storyteller and this is a great story.”Cited by: 7.

Arlington, Virginia is packed with resources that Mr. Gilmore could have used to make this a better book, including the Arlington Historical Society. That Mr. Gilmore is not a scholar is quite evident in the text, but it is his responsibility alone that he did not choose to at least work with a competent historical scholar when so many are available just across the Potomac.4/5(5). The new Arlington was referred to as “the most elegant and complete hotel in America” in Charles Cutter’s Guide Book. Designed in three sections, but with five levels, the “new” Arlington featured a spacious veranda with arcades running the full length of the hotel. The Arlington Historical Museum occupies the former Hume School, built in and the oldest school building in Arlington. Although Arlington is in Virginia, part of the South, it was an early adopter of school integration and admitted the first black students in National Historic Places. Arlington has more than 70 historic buildings, sites and neighborhoods listed in the National Register of Historic Places, including the former home of famous Civil War General Robert E. Lee, the largest defense housing complex of its kind and many of Arlington's oldest homes, schools and churches.
