General Grant's Memorial

This note was brought to my attention by Barbara Dave who found it in the November 13 1907 issue of the Washington Times published in Washington, D. C. and have had it placed on

Civil War veterans have greeted, with warm approval, the decision of the Grant Memorial commission to place a monument in the Potomac Gardens. Before the final decision , expressions from Army Societies all over the United States came to the chairman, General Granville M.Dodge.

The work will be completed upon the settlement of a slight legal proceeding, instituted by a local person asking that it be restrained from the cutting of three trees. This proceeding will be eradicated when the courts understand that the trees will not be cut, but transplanted.
