Ulysses S. Grant Memorial

My first time in Washington D.C. was right before I left to go on an exchange to Germany. We only had a day to walk around and explore the sights, and I saw this great opportunity for a photo of one of the lesser-photographed monuments, and I believe it really shows some of the struggles in American history.
