This tour traces the Boxer Rebellion which occurred in China in 1900 by visiting the graves of many of the conflict's participants buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
The tour hopes to give the visitor both an understanding of this little-known American conflict and an appreciation for some lesser-known gravesites in the cemetery.
Following a roughly chronological route, the visitor will read about the battles in China and the role each of the services played in the capture of Peking (Beijing).
Each of the 12 main stops features a participant, their photo, and a historical or thematic story relating to their service.
