Arlington County sits directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., in the Northern Virginia region. It is the site for the famous Arlington National Cemetery, established as an American military cemetery during the Civil War. The cemetery covers 612 acres. Over 200,000 veterans and their dependents buried here represent every conflict in which the United States has fought. Arlington also is home to The Pentagon, the HQ for the U.S. Department of Defense.
