Guests spoke at the rededication of Arlington House, The Robert E. Lee Memorial. This event was hosted by the National Park Service and celebrated the completion of the interior restoration and the return of the historic furnishings. Built by George Washington Parke Custis, step-grandson of George Washington, Arlington House was originally a memorial to the first president. Robert E. Lee married Custis' daughter, Mary, who was the great-granddaughter of Martha Washington, and it was at Arlington House that Lee resigned from the U.S. Army at the outset of the Civil War. Arlington House is the only national memorial to a former Confederate leader, and recognizes Lee’s post-war public efforts at reconciliation. close
