Ulysses S. Grant Memorial

Capitol Grounds, Washington, DC 20004, USA

The Grant Memorial is one of the most important sculptural groups in Washington. It consists of a central equestrian statue of General Ulysses S. Grant, with two sculptured groups of military figures situated at either end of a large marble platform. The memorial sits at the base of the West Front of the Capitol Building, opposite from the Lincoln Memorial, so that the general who fought for the Union could forever face the president who saved the Union.
