Spring 2014 will be a special one of remembrance for Arlington National Cemetery, as 2014 marks the 150th anniversary of the cemetery's first burial and of its designation as a national cemetery. To commemorate, the Cemetery will host a series of special events from May through June 2014 designed to honor the traditions, remember the sacrifice and explore the history of the cemetery.

With observances and ceremonies beginning in May, which was when the very first burial took place, through June, when it was incorporated, Arlington National Cemetery will host a series of special tours, lectures and other programs that will showcase the history of different aspects of the cemetery and some of the noted figures buried there.
