National cemetery's centuries-old 'Arlington Oak' felled by Irene

September 2, 2011 by legitgov

National cemetery's centuries-old 'Arlington Oak' felled by Irene 01 Sep 2011 For more than two centuries, it stood as a silent witness to history -- the "Arlington Oak," a tree that sprouted on land once owned by Robert E. Lee, and later consecrated as part of Arlington National Cemetery. Last weekend, it fell -- one more casualty of the winds and heavy rains from Hurricane Irene. The Arlington Oak, estimated to be 220 years old, stood by in stoic silence as a nation's history spread out nearby, as the acres filled with the graves of veterans, dignitaries, presidents and the fallen from war after war.
