The Department of the Army, which oversees the Arlington, Va., cemetery, first proposed a replacement in May 2003 and began a review process, but a letter-writing campaign by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and others in late summer 2007 prompted the congressional action.
The fate of the replacement marble block, cut at the Yule Quarry near Marble, Colo., and readied for shipment by Glenwood Springs, Colo., car dealer John Haines several years ago, is still to be determined.
