All reviews civil war capitol building reflecting pool equestrian statue large statue president of the united states white marble worth a stop under construction union artillery horses pedestal horseback statues mall memorial
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.
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.
Impressive equestrian statue of Ulysses S.Grant is hard to miss: it is right in front of the US Capitol building.

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.
