Standing 150 feet tall and 185 feet across, Gutzon Borglum created an awesome monument known as Mount Rushmore. Mount Rushmore is a national monument located in Keystone, South Dakota. It has the heads of four outstanding presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Mount Rushmore was built from October 4, 1927 to October 31, 1941. That is about four years! Mount Rushmore cost $989,992.32 to build. Choosing those four leaders wouldn’t be hard. George Washington was our first president. He was called the founder of our country and he was a fantastic leader. Thomas Jefferson, our third president, helped write the Declaration of Independence. Abraham Lincoln was a leader in the Civil War. He wanted to abolish slavery. As our 16th president, he had a great amount of courage and never gave up. Theodore Roosevelt dreamed of becoming a president in his childhood and followed that dream when he became our 26th president. Roosevelt was a wildlife conservationist and also made Mount Rushmore a national monument. Mount Rushmore is an outstanding monument for all.
