      There was actually talk at one point of having both James Longstreet and
      George Pickett moved to Arlington and being reburied together next to each
      other, their sons and a Confederate monument of some sort (Not the current
      Confederate monument at Arlington). I don't recall the details off the top
      of my head and of course it never came about.
