Come visit

the final resting place of

General and President

Ulysses S. Grant,

and his wife,

Julia D. 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.
