The life and extraordinary public service of General and President Ulysses S. Grant is reflected in the grand monument in New York City that serves as his final resting place, popularly known as Grant’s Tomb. The Grant Monument Association, the successor to the organization of the same name that built and administered Grant’s Tomb until it was transferred to the National Park Service in 1959, was formed to ensure that this important part of our heritage would be preserved.
