Located in Riverside Park in Manhattan, NY, this memorial to the victorious Union commander of the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant, includes the tombs of General Grant and his wife, Julia Dent Grant.
Approximately 90,000 people from around the world donated over $600,000 towards the construction of Grant's Tomb. This was the largest public fundraising effort ever at that time. Designed by architect John Duncan, the granite and marble structure was completed in 1897 and remains the largest mausoleum in North America. Over one million people attended the parade and dedication ceremony of Grant's Tomb on April 27, 1897.
