Additional Details:
One of the most used entrances to Arlington Cemetery. The lintel surrounding the marble pillars bears the single word "Sheridan," and on the columns themselves are inscribed the names Scott, Lincoln, Stanton and Grant. The gate was built in 1879, the pillars having been secured from the old War Office at Washington, a famous government building erected in 1818.
