Swallowed the Dead

I’ve swallowed the dead,
Of a torn land’s end.
And I hold the remains,
Of an unknown friend

A mansion once stood,
Where I now lay,
We honor all those
Who gave us today.

What am I?

Arlington National Cemetery, the burial place of soldiers from the United States Civil War. It also houses the tomb of unknown soldiers. General Robert E. Lee’s mansion once stood on the land that is now occupied by the cemetery. And on Memorial Day in the US, we honor all those who died while serving their country’s armed forces.
