Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?
Come visit the final resting place of former General and President Ulysses S. Grant and his wife Julia Dent Grant.
The memorial represents gratitude for the Civil War hero who helped preserve the union. Architecturally, it exemplifies the mixture of classical forms and motifs, on a massive scale, that characterized turn-of-the-century architecture. Interior mosaics and sculptures reflect the desire, on the part of the Grant Monument Association and the National Park Service, to embellish the tomb with artistic pieces commemorating General Grant.
