Leaving the Capitol, the Fallen Heroes Begin Their Long March to Arlington, America's Valhalla Within the Rotunda (right), below John Trumbull's "The Surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown," mothers whose sons died in their country's wars pay silent tribute. As servicemen salute (below), the caskets are borne to caissons for an escort with full military honors along Washington's Constitution Avenue. Passing Lincoln Memorial (lower right), the cortege crosses Arlington Memorial Bridge to Virginia. KODACHROMESBY NATIONALGEOGRAPHICPHOTOGRAPHERSGIFFORD D. HAMPSHIRE (BELOW), 596 F.
