Chinese Memorial


Behind the Tomb is a Chinese memorial on the site of Grant's temporary tomb.  Enclosed by a black fence, this site contains a Chinese-English plaque and a ginko tree planted on behalf of Li Hung Chang, the Chinese viceroy who had met and developed a friendship with Grant during the latter's trip around the world.
