You have probably seen a photo like this, Arlington National Cemetery during the Christmas season, when beautiful wreaths with red velvet bows are placed at veterans’ tombstones. It is a beautiful and touching scene.

The Patterson Exam was given to eighth grade students to make sure they were ready to enter high school. If a student passed the exam he or she could enter the high school of their choice.
