All reviews civil war general grant capitol building reflecting pool national mall under restoration nice statue botanical gardens worth a stop united states american history fitting tribute under construction artillery union horses pedestal
The Grant Memorial has the general on horseback which makes it one of the more compelling of the Washington statues. But its also flanked by some other excellent depictions of the civil war and is well worth a look.
In front of the Capitol Building looking over the Mall this is a stunning memorial. Recently refurbished the statue of Grant and the detail in the faces of the soldiers in the flanking statues make this a must see on any visit to Washington

When we were there in September 2016, everything immediately west of the Capitol which includes the Grant memorial ( there are several different bronze statues that are part of that memorial), was covered up with tarps and scaffolding and barricaded off. The Washington monument had just been closed and under repair as well, we had tickets for that. We returned in July 2018 and everything at Grants memorial had been completed, it is beautiful and a must see location, by the way, the Washington monument is still closed and under repair.
