Students explore Grant's Tomb, identifying the architectural styles and features utilized in this structure. Discussion topics include the reasons for memorializing Grant, how the tomb has changed over the years, and how previous architectural styles have influenced later ones. Students are challenged to compare this style of memorial to those created both before and after.
