Mt. Rushmore

Began in 1927.
Completed in 1941.
Located near Keystone, South Dakota.

Each President's head is as tall as a six story building.
Washington looks very serious.
He wants Obama to tell the insurance companies to go to hell!!

Gutzon Borglum was 6o years old when he began the project.
He was a student of Auguste Rodin.
He died in 1941 before the official dedication.
No fatalities during the construction of Mt. Rushmore. A miracle considering all the dynamite that was used and how humans are not the sharpest pencils in the box.
