The Centennial Dedication of Ulysses S. Grant's National Memorial (4/27/1897 to 4/27/1997)
Grant's great-great-grandson, Ulysses Grant Dietz, representing Grant's descendants, emphasized the importance of teaching the current generation about the Civil War and about his great-great-grandfather's accomplishments. He also wished the renovated National Memorial would maintain its present dignified condition for the future generation in remembrance of General Grant. Popularly known as Grant's Tomb, the memorial is one of the largest mausoleums in the world, rising to an imposing 150 feet from the bluff overlooking the Hudson River. Its construction was a mammoth undertaking for the time: hundreds of men worked on the structure between 1892 and 1897, using over 8,000 tons of Vermont granite. Modeled after some of the most famous monuments ever built, Grant's Tomb incorporated elements from the tomb of King Mausolus at Halicarnassus, the tomb of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, Napoleon's tomb in Dome de Invalides, and Garfield Memorial in Cleveland, Ohio. New York architect John Duncan was selected by a panel of judges to design Grant's tomb. Gen. Grant passed away on July 23, 1885 and his funeral was held on August 8, 1885.

Also see Grant's Original Burial Site Mike's Notes: Grant is the major exception to the Death in Office Rule for large presidential monuments. He certainly deserves the monument, though for his military exploits rather than for his presidential record. His monument is the largest mausoleum in North America. The monument was patterned after the graves of several famous rulers of the past, including Napoleon and the Roman emperor Hadrian. This was intended to illustrate Grant's status in history. Surrounding the tombs of Grant and his wife are busts of many of the generals who served with Grant during the Civil War. See Ulysses S.

And to show that this is no empty boasting for the present occasion, but real tangible fact, you have only to consider the power which our city possesses and which has been won by those very qualities which I have mentioned.

original name HIRAM ULYSSES GRANT (b. April 27, 1822, Point Pleasant, Ohio, U.S.d. July 23, 1885, Mount McGregor, N.Y.), U.S. general, commander of the Union armies during the late years (1864-65) of the American Civil War and 18th president of the United States (1869-77).
Early life.
Grant was the son of Jesse Root Grant, a tanner, and Hannah Simpson Grant. Detesting the work around his father's tannery, Ulysses performed his share of chores on farmland owned by his father, developing considerable skill in handling horses. Jesse secured for Ulysses an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., in 1839. Ulysses had no interest in military life but accepted the appointment, realizing that the alternative was no further education. Ulysses decided to reverse his original name and enroll as Ulysses Hiram; his appointment to West Point was erroneously made in the name Ulysses S. Grant, the name he eventually accepted, maintaining that the middle initial did not stand for anything. At West Point, Grant ranked 21st in a class of 39 but distinguished himself in horsemanship and showed considerable ability in mathematics. Upon graduation in 1843, he was assigned as a brevet second lieutenant to the 4th U.S. Infantry, stationed near St. Louis, Mo. There he fell in love with Julia Boggs Dent, whom he married in 1848. They had four children.

First Inaugural Address
HURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1869 General Grant was the first of many Civil War officers to become President of the United States. He refused to ride in the carriage to the Capitol with President Johnson, who then decided not to attend the ceremony. The oath of office was administered by Chief Justice Salmon Chase on the East Portico. The inaugural parade boasted eight full divisions of the Armythe largest contingent yet to march on such an occasion. That evening, a ball was held in the Treasury Building.
Citizens of the United States: Your suffrages having elected me to the office of President of the United States, I have, in conformity to the Constitution of our country, taken the oath of office prescribed therein. I have taken this oath without mental reservation and with the determination to do to the best of my ability all that is required of me. The responsibilities of the position I feel, but accept them without fear. The office has come to me unsought; I commence its duties untrammeled. I bring to it a conscious desire and determination to fill it to the best of my ability to the satisfaction of the people. On all leading questions agitating the public mind I will always express my views to Congress and urge them according to my judgment, and when I think it advisable will exercise the constitutional privilege of interposing a veto to defeat measures which I oppose; but all laws will be faithfully executed, whether they meet my approval or not.

This memorial to Ulysses S. Grant, victorious Union commander of the Civil War, includes the tomb of General Grant and his wife, Julia Dent Grant. A West Point graduate, Grant served in the Mexican War and at various frontier posts, before rapidly rising through the ranks during the Civil War. Grant's tenacity and boldness led to victories in the Battles of Vicksburg and Chattanooga and Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox, scenes depicted by mosaics in the tomb. In 1866 Congress awarded Grant his fourth star making him the first full General of the Armies. A grateful nation twice elected Grant to serve as President of the United States, from 1869 to 1877. Grant's accomplishments include signing the act establishing the first national park, Yellowstone, on March 1, 1872. After the Presidency, Grant settled in New York City. Ulysses S. Grant died of throat cancer on July 23, 1885 in Mount McGregor, New York, and was laid to rest in New York City on August 8th. Approximately 90,000 people from around the country and the world donated a total of over $600,000 towards construction of his tomb, 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. Home Accessibility Activities Contact Us ... Special Events Contact Information

Ulysses Simpson Grant
American General Ulysses S. Grant played the principal role in the Union defeat of the Confederacy in the American Civil War, his tactical and strategic abilities proving to be superior to those of his primary foe, Robert Edward Lee. Although described as a drunkard and a butcher for the heavy casualties he experienced, Grant understood the importance of committing all military and economic assets to total warfare. In achieving victory, Grant preserved the Union of the United States of America. Neither Grant's civilian nor military beginnings were remarkable. Born the oldest of six children to a Point Pleasant, Ohio, tannery owner on April 27, 1822, Grant received an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy in 1839. Upon reporting to West Point, Grant decided to changed his birth name from Hiram Ulysses to Ulysses Hiram to avoid the embarrassing initials "HUG." An administrative error on the part of the congressman who nominated him for the academy recorded the name as Ulysses Simpson. To avoid further confusion and red tape, Grant made no effort to correct the error and readily became U. S. Grant. Grant showed no great potential at West Point, graduation twenty-first among thirty-nine cadets in the class of 1843. Although horsemanship had proved to be Grant's most outstanding attribute at the academy, the new lieutenant's commission was in the infantry, and he reported to the Fourth Regiment at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, after graduation.

Portraits of the Presidents and First Ladies, 1789-Present
On April 27, 1822, military leader and U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant was born in Point Pleasant, Ohio. A quiet, unassuming, and keenly intelligent man, Grant rose to national prominence as the commanding officer of the Union army during the Civil War . Though trained as a soldier at West Point , Grant never aspired to a military career. Of his early cadet years he wrote: "A military life had no charms for me, and I had not the faintest idea of staying in the army even if I should be graduated, which I did not expect." Yet, he did indeed graduate from West Point in 1843 and went on to learn the practical lessons of warfare during the Mexican War Julia Dent , the sister of a West Point classmate. Four years into the marriage, the young couple was separated once again by duty when Grant and his regiment were transferred to the Pacific Northwest. Longing for his family and bored with his routine tasks, Grant began drinkinga habit that would haunt him for years to come. A promotion did not alleviate Grant's woes, and in 1854 the thirty-two-year-old captain resigned his commission.
