Mount Rushmore National Memorial
is a huge carving on a granite cliff called Mount Rushmore in the Black
Hills of South Dakota. It shows the faces of four American Presidents:
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham
Work on the memorial began in 1927
and continued, with lapses, for over 14 years. Borglum died in 1941,
before the project was finished. His son Lincoln finished the work.
Gilbert C. Fite described it in his book Mount Rushmore. Mount
Rushmore is so tall, it stands taller than the Great Pyramid of Egypt.
This memorial is part of the National Park System.
