Fredericksburg Memorial and Arlington Cemetery

I recently passed this memorial in Fredericksburg, near what people call the ‘bamboo forest’ (it’s a really nice area and I would encourage people to go for a walk – it’s very beautiful!) and it’s a memorial for the people of Fredericksburg who lost their lives in World War One and World War Two. It reminded me of the exhibition at the Fredericksburg Area Museum that some of us may have visited, where there were many examples given of how the people of Downtown Fredericksburg were affected by these conflicts. It serves as a reminder just how much damage can be felt by a small community and I think it really hits home how this is just one small in town in Virginia – never mind the other cities or towns across America and Europe that would have also been affected.

I also recently took a tour of Washington DC and passed by the Arlington Cemetery (excuse the very blurry photographs below, but I just wanted to try and show how expansive this cemetery is) and its very intense to witness physically the amount of people that lost their lives to wars like the one we are studying (even if passed by very briefly in the car). I think it’s a lot more ‘real’ almost to see the affects in front of you, first hand, in combination with some of the texts we are studying, and wanted to include it here as we discussed briefly last lesson of the ‘tomb of the unknown soldier’ which I found out is also located here in the Arlington Cemetery. I think it just places the consequences of this war a lot more in perspective and gives a further ending or story to the ones we have already read. Someone like Paul, Kat, Montie, Bob or even Nellie could be buried here.

  1. I like that you drew the connections of the different cemeteries to the content we’ve been reading and discussing this semester. I definitely agree with your comment about how seeing the cemeteries in person really adds to the sense of ‘realness’ that we are supposed to get from the texts. At these locations we can see the direct and immediate impact, and even draw parallels to those thoughts and feelings to what we have read. As someone who has been to, and laid wreaths at, Arlington National Cemetery, I can speak from experience when I discuss how powerful and moving of an experience it was to go there. To me, taking this course has given me a more direct connection to that experience, and added even more depth and significance to it.
