Grant, the Union hero of the civil war, at a cost not to ex ceed $250,000. and designated the president' of the Society of the Army of the Tennessee, the chairman of the joint' committee on the library and the Secretary of War a commission to se lect a site and arrange for the erec tion of the memorial. The act" pro vided that the memorial might he erected in any unoccupied square or reservation belonging to the govern ment. except the grounds of the Capi tol or th# Library of Congress. June 128. HOJ, Congress appropriated $50. 000 to enable the Commission to com mence the work, and authorized it to enter into a contract for the neces sary construction. That act limited the total cost of the memorial to 9240,000. Twenty-Sevea Designs Submitted. In accordance with these enact ments, Gen. G. M. Dodge. Senator George Peabody and Secretary Elihu Root, then composing the commission, invited competitive designs by Amer ican architects and sculptors for the memorial.

A contract was subse quently made with those artists for the construction of the memorial ? In accordance with their design. At' the same time, the commission, after con sultation /with Messrs. McKlm and Olmsted, Interested In the artistic de velopment of the parks of Washing ton, selected the Botanic Garden qlte. In compliance with law, the com mission reported its action to both houses of Congress. June 30. 1906. Congress appropriated $40,000 for continulng'work on the memorial and provided that it might be located in the unoccupied portion of the Botanic Garden, between 1st and 2d streets, as recommended by the Grant Memo rial Commission. Various c&uses have contributed to the delay in the com pletion of the memorial. Chief of these wsa the strong opposition to its erection in Botanic Garden. One of the reasons given by the commission for Its action was that the site se lected was on the axis between the I Capitol, the Washington Monument and the then projected Lincoln Memo rial. Rxeavalloas Begun la 1007. In October, 1907, the contractors began making excavations for the foundations for the memorial. Two days later these operations were stopped by an order from the Supreme Court of the bistrlct requiring the contractors to show cause why they should not be enjoined from cutting down certain historic trees in clear ing the site. Subsequently the Crit tenden peace oak and two other his toric trees were taken up and trans planted In other parts of the reserva tion. It was not until May, 1908. that the contractors were able to resume work on the foundation. The original contract called for the completion of the memorial within a period of live years, but it became necessary to extend that limit several times. . ? The Grant Memorial Is probably the largest group of statuary in the world and has 'been approved as a splendid work of art by Augustus Saint Gaud ens, Charles F. McKlm. Daniel C. French and other prominent Ameri can artists. The marble superstruc ture on which the various groups stand is 262 feet long, $9 feet deep and 5 feet above the ground. An equestrian statue of Grant stands on a high central pedestal at the west side facing the Washington Monu ment and Lincoln Memorial at the other end of the Mali. Lover pedestals at the north and south ends support massive groups of cavalry I and artillery, respectively. The infantry arm will be represented by bronze bas-reliefs to be placed on the sides of the main pedestal. The entire work la complete except for the placing1 of these Infantry plaques. Actio? ui tl???e. In the finished work there Is a fine intermingling: of action And repose. At each end, upon the flanked exe dras, are colossal groups of strug gling men and horses in all tjja-para phernalia and trappings of war. The group at the north end represents cavalry, and the group at the south end artillery. They face Inward aad picture a,mad rush toward the cen ter, across the wide stretch of mar ble that separates them from the mounted figure of the great com mander in the ccnter. The statue of Grant on horseback Is of heroic pro portions. He wears the familiar sloych hat and military cloak of civil war days, and they lend themselves artistically to the group. His pose Is that of a reviewing officer, and is said to be a line conception of that quiet keeness and resolution that marked the man. The horse partakes something of the life and action that rages In the artillery and cavalry groups, and seems to emphasize the calmness and Intrepidity of the rider. That impres sion is heightened by th? bas-reliefs of Infantry designed for. the sides of the pedestal oil which he stands. One of these shows the foot troops In heavy marching order, trudging along doggedly on one of the forced marches that were part of their daily lives in the sixties, and the other bas-relief shows the Infantry in bat tle. Courage aad Streagtfc. At the four corners, near the base of the pedestal, are large bronze lions, cou chant, emblematic of dourage and strength. Each is protecting the Ameri can standard held In his outstretched paw. Around the superstructure are eight ornamental bronze candelabra. The cavalry and artillery groups have been in position for several months and have been the subject of considerable Interest to artists, tourists and the peo ple generally. An Idea of their size is conveyed by the statement that the cavalry group alone weighs fifteen tons and the artillery group eighteen tons Special artillery and cavalry drills were given at the West Point Military Acad emy and other posts to al<f Sculptor Shrady In the development of his de signs for those arms. Tlie finished prod ucts are regarded as highly realistic and complete in detail. ORDERED TO INDIANA. Sergt. William B.
