Who's Buried in Grant's tomb?

After his presidency Ulysses S. Grant settled in New York City, where he was laid to rest in August of 1885. A huge public fundraising effort brought in over $600,000 from approximately 90,000 contributors for the construction of his tomb. Completed in 1897, the massive Neo-Classical Revival structure, designed in granite and marble by architect John Duncan, remains the largest mausoleum in North America. Over one million people attended the parade and dedication ceremony.

122nd Street at Riverside Drive, New York, NY
