Mount Rushmore
Monthly Column by Marina Rundell
July 2008

Picture below of Mount Rushmore with the flags of the states and territories of the United States.  

The sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, chose George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.  Why?  "Washington was selected for Mount Rushmore because he was the father of our country and represents our struggle for independence, our constitution and our liberty. Jefferson was to be honored on Mt. Rushmore as the author of the Declaration of Independence, representative government and for the expansion of our country through the Louisiana Purchase. Teddy Roosevelt, the third bust on Mount Rushmore was selected because he saw through the completion of the Panama Canal linking the oceans and opening the connecting waters of the East and the West. Lincoln was chosen for preserving the Union through one of America's darkest hours and for the ideals of freedom and equality for all." -http://www.mountrushmoreinfo.com/

Also, according to the wishes of Borglum, there is no admission fee.  However, there is a parking pass that is good for the entire calendar year to encourage repeat visits.  In 2008, this costs $10.00.
