The next landmark is a sculpture of Ulysses S. Grant, executed by Daniel Chester French, the sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial. Dedicated on the 77th anniversary of Grant's birth, President McKinley came for a military parade which preceded the unveiling. Thousands of Philadelphians turned out for the dedication of this statue.
