    If I’m not mistaken, he’s the only unsuccessful candidate for president buried at Arlington National Cemetery (that’s not counting minor party candidates and guys like Taft who won at least once).

    What about RFK and EMK?

  3. Alfred says:

    Many congratulations, Gerard. This is most exciting!

    RFK and EMK were not nominated. I should have clarified…

    Well, I was being annoying with that one. I think that you are correct.

    McClellan’s son is buried there. So is Robert Todd Lincoln. Thus both contestants in 1908 (Bryan and Taft) are buried there, and the sons of both contestants in 1864 are buried there.
