I would say the memorial is ok. The views of the Capitol are grand as well as a view of the Washington Monument. The pool behind is drained for what I assume is the winter. If you are hoping to see more than that I...More

The statue itself is very impressive and the location provides magnificent views of the Capitol. At the time of writing the reflection pool was empty which was disappointing. However I would recommend visiting for some great photo opportunities.

The statue is very beautiful and fully made in black. It is a great contract to all the white marble around there.

Today we went to the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial and it was a great way to honor him. The statue was very clean and well kept. It is also a great spot to take a picture of the mall from. I highly recommend this place!

Do you know about the history of statues when people are in horseback? Look it up! The kids found it interesting to learn about the position of the horse’s legs as it relates to how the rider may have passed.

General Ulysses S Grant was one of the heroes of the US Civil War, and was largely militarily responsible for keeping the Union together. His memorial just a few hundred metres down from the Capitol is a stirring and fitting monument.

It’s a statue so it doesn’t take long to look at. But it’s a real nice one. And it’s right in front of the Capitol which allows for great photos. Fairly cool.

This is located near the Capitol building. You can see the reflecting pool and the Washington monument.

I loved this memorial, loved the fact he’s on horseback as a General and not as the President of the United States. It’s a very striking monument it’s well worth the visit.
