In 1915, President Woodrow Wilson placed a memorabilia box in the cornerstone of the Memorial Amphitheater at Arlington National Cemetery. In April 2020, 105 years later, it was opened to discover what was inside. American History TV visited Arlington to see the contents with cemetery historian Tim Frank and conservator Caitlin Smith, who talked about their significance and why the previous cemetery caretakers felt they were important to highlight at that moment in history. close
