Here Comes the General…and his Right Hand Man
Arlington House, atop the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, was the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee and Mary Custis Lee, but the estate was originally the home of George Washington Parke Custis, the grandson of Martha Washington and her first husband, Daniel Custis. Arlington House was also the site of George Washington’s military tent, often called the “first Oval Office” where Hamilton, as Washington’s secretary, wrote much of his correspondence.
