86. The law I refer to was passed in 1958

The few hundred (not thousands) Confederates buried there were interned long before the law was passed.

"In the beginning of burials at Arlington, Civil War veterans from the union were buried amongst freed blacks and Confederate soldiers without much distinction between them." - See more at: http://www.freetoursbyfoot.com/confederates-buried-at-arlington-national-cemetery/#sthash.F57IAAng.dpuf

One should also be aware that those Confederates who later served in the US military after the Civil War would still be considered vets even if the law were to be repealed.
