The final resting place of President Ulysses Simpson Grant and his wife, Julia, is the largest mausoleum in North America. It testifies to a people's gratitude for the man who ended the bloodiest conflict in American history as Commanding General of the Union Army and then, as President of the United States, strove to heal a nation after a civil war and make rights for all citizens a reality.

The tomb and memorial is very nice. The tomb is a huge building, and you can walk around the main floor and lower level wth the caskets. There isn't a whole lot to see though. Across the street is the visitor center. It's very small...More
