It's estimated that a record 1 million people showed up for General Grant's funeral which took place on August 8, 1885. General Grant himself had said that he preferred to be buried either in St. Louis, Mo, Galena, Ill or New York City and insisted that a place be reserved by his side for his wife Julia.
|Immediately following his death, New York Mayor William Grace offered the family a burial site in NYC with the assurance that Mrs. Grant could be interred beside her husband.|
