Resting in Peace

Going through some photos of a recent trip to Arlington National Cemetery, I came across the two above that I snapped of the obelisk that marks the grave of Joseph Wheeler. He served as a general in both the American Civil War (for the Confederacy) and in the Spanish American War (for the United States).

He is one of two former Confederate generals buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

In the background of the first photo, Arlington House is visible and the other photo is looking out toward Washington D.C. across Arlington National Cemetery.
