Hidden from view in a forest on the campus of the nation's best-known psychiatric institute rest at least 300 fallen Civil War soldiers. Interspersed are warriors from the Confederacy and the Union, white and black. For years, this secret cemetery along the Potomac River just off of Interstate 295 has been closed to the public.
"If you're driving north on I-295 from the Wilson Bridge, if you don't allow yourself to be distracted by jostling drivers, on the left side you'll see the new Coast Guard building and immediately to the left, there's this real steep slope," Mr. Sanders said of the burials. "And that's where these fellows are."
"You have to look at it from their perspective. We were trying to gift something to the federal government that, on paper, it already owned," Mr. Sanders said.
