On Saturday June 12, 2010, FCCPA members took a guided tour of Congressional Cemetery led by FCCPA member and Congressional Cemetery docent, Dayle Dooley. We learned that in 1807 a burial ground for citizens in the east end of the new federal city was founded. In the first five years, 13 members of Congress, two vice presidents, and numerous military and government officials were interred, along with a number of ordinary citizens. Today over 55,000 people rest at Congressional Cemetery and their stories are part of our American History.
