Tomb Of The UnKnown Soldier of the American Revolution

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections

This tomb is in the early 18th century cemetery at the rear of the Old Presbyterian Metting House in Olde Towne Alexandria, VA. I was both unable and unwilling to enter the site to photograph the inscription on top of the statuary.   Dr Craik, first Surgeon General of the US Army and George Washington's personal physician is also interred in this cemetery

So grateful for his sacrifice!  My Mom often told the story of a young man named "NJ" who was almost my father...He was in the Army/Air Force and a pilot, on his last scheduled mission he was shot down.  She loved my Dad dearly, and he indeed was a great guy but wondered at times about what kind of life she would have had if NJ lived.  I would have grown up in New Orleans instead of NY...hmmm!

What history you have there. This monument represents so many lives lost and unknown soldiers.

Karen I am aware your reports on Woodbridge are an integral part of your market strategy to be current on many facts throughout Prince William County. The obvious goal is to provide your clients with the very best possible representation and blog posting is an excellent method and may include posts about other interesting locations such as this one in Alexandria
