Ulysses S. Grant Memorial
Dedicated in 1922, the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial is one of the most famous—and most visited—Civil War Monuments in Washington, D.C. The towering bronze statue of this famous general atop his stoic horse is an iconic landmark in a city that’s full of memorials that pay homage to America’s far-reaching past. Travelers will note his look of calm amid the storm of war, a nod to his well-known even disposition—even under fire. 

Four smaller pedestals topped with bronze lions surround the towering Ulysses S. Grant, and helped to make it the largest bronze statue in America cast during its time. Travelers say it’s among the grandest memorials in the city and its close proximity to the Capitol and the Botanical Gardens makes it an easy addition to an afternoon exploring D.C.
