Weekly Photo Challenge: Refreshing

Detail of Grant's tomb

I find the quote which adorns the exterior of Grant’s tomb refreshing. “Let us have peace” are the words which closed the President’s memoirs. For a man who served his country in war, his final wish strikes me as beautiful and timely.

My original post about the General Grant National Monument is here.

    Thanks so much for saying hello! You have a lovely site. You’ve inspired me to add a few more cemeteries to my “must-see” list.

      Well, you’ve certainly visited a number of places that count as “Holy Grails” for us. Thanks for whetting our appetites in that regard and for your compliments on our site.
