The Ulysses S. Grant Memorial is a presidential memorial in Washington, D.C., honoring American Civil War general and U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. It sits at the base of Capitol Hill on First Street, between Pennsylvania Avenue and Maryland Avenue, below the west front of the United States Capitol. Its sculpture of Grant on horseback faces west toward the Lincoln Memorial, which honors Grant's wartime president, Abraham Lincoln; together, the Grant and Lincoln memorials define the eastern and western boundaries of the National Mall. It includes the second-largest equestrian statue in the United States and the fourth-largest in the world.
