Grant's Tomb

The General Grant National Memorial, known as Grant’s Tomb, is a mausoleum containing the bodies of Civil War General and 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885), and his wife, Julia Dent Grant (1826-1902). It is located
in the Riverside Park area of Manhattan in New York City. The U.S. National Park
Service conducted a groundbreaking ceremony on April 27, 1891. The structure was
completed in time for the 75th anniversary of Grant’s birth on April 27, 1897. The
tomb is the second largest mausoleum in the Western Hemisphere.
