Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays August 4, 2020

I mentioned the 7 largest cemeteries on a previous Tombstone Tuesdays – The 7 Largest Cemeteries in the World — BillionGraves Blog – Tombstone Tuesdays June 16, 2020, so I decided to see what I could find on each of them. This took a bit longer than I thought it would take. It’s expected the cemetery will house 400,000 veterans and their families once completed.
