Reopening of Robert E. Lee house highlights experience of enslaved residents


The newly reopened Arlington House near Washington, a mansion where Robert E. Lee lived for decades before joining the Confederacy as its commander during the US Civil War, now aims to tell a more nuanced story of the estate by highlighting the experience of enslaved residents as well. "Through the rehabilitation, we’ve put effort, energy, resources in understanding how to better elevate the story of the enslaved people," says Aaron LaRocca, a national park ranger.
