Significance: The monument in Lincoln Park commemorates General Grant, the commander of the Union Forces in the Civil War. Fundraising for the memorial began almost immediately after Grant's death in 1885. A voluntary subscription was initiated and barely 6 years later on October 7, 1891, the memorial was dedicated. Constructed of rugged stone with Richardsonian Romanesque detailing, the memorial is situated upon a hill near Lake Shore Drive. Louis T. Rebisso won a competition, beating fifteen others to design the memorial.
