Favorite thing: Civil War General and 18th United State President Ullysses Grant married a woman from a prominent St. Louis family - Julia Dent - and for several years operated a farm just outside the city limits. He is commemorated with the fine statue, the 1888 work of Robert Porter Bringhurst (1855-1924). It is said that this was the first Grant statue to be unveiled in the USA, and the ceremony attracted a crowd of thousands.

It's located on the grounds of the St. Louis City Hall, at the corner of 12th and Market.
