The History of Our Nation Set in Stone
Come join us at The Trumbull Historical Society as Carolyn Ivanoff, educator and independent historian, leads us on a virtual tour of Arlington National Cemetery.
Follow the history of Arlington from its humble origins during the Civil War as a burial place of necessity, to its current celebrity as the most prestigious cemetery in the United States. On the stones of Arlington our nation's history can be read. Arlington's green slopes, once the great antebellum plantation of the Custis & Lee families, shelter over 275,000 United States veterans from every war.
Carolyn was named Civil War Trust Preservationist Teacher of the year in 2003. Carolyn writes and presents frequently on American History. In 2016 Carolyn was honored to receive the Connecticut Social Studies Council Bruce Fraser Friends of the Social Studies award
