Honor Roll: Arlington County (Virginia) Veterans Memorial

The land that became Arlington County, Virginia, was originally donated to the United States government to form part of the new federal capital district of Columbia. Congress named the area Alexandria County of the District of Columbia. That body returned the land to Virginia in 1846 after its citizens' requested retrocession due to issues of legislative representation and slavery. The commonwealth's General Assembly changed the name to Arlington County in 1920 to avoid confusion with the adjacent City of Alexandria.

In 1931 the American Legion constructed and dedicated a war memorial in the Clarendon neighborhood. The Arlington County Veterans Memorial was moved to the court house during the 1940s. In 1986 it was moved to its current location at the intersection of Clarendon and Wilson Boulevards and North Irving Street.
