That's one statue during that period of our history that I can handle, Steven! Well done. (My SC site is finally back up after server challenges, apparently, since Tuesday night.)

The statue is grand but I'm also admiring that crystal blue skies.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

I'm not sure why you included two views. The framing on the left is clearly superior since it omits the distracting industrial complex

sherri from Little Rock, Arkansas, United States

Hmm, why is he in Chicago?

i was always taught he was from Ohio, my native state

also, is anyone wanting to tear him down?

22 Dec 2018 3:49pm

@sherri: He was from Ohio, but later moved to Galena, Illinois (where these photos were taken) where he made a name for himself. No one is wanting to take him down. Unlike Robert E. Lee, who he fought against in the Civil War, Grant was against slavery. I only know of Lee's statue being taken down in various cities across the country.

Sam from Chennai, India

Magnificent sculpture. Excellent presentation. Superb. :)
