Mount Rushmore National Memorial

Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Keystone, South Dakota, symbolizes both national pride and an awesome feat of engineering. Carved from a mountain of granite and standing proud since 1941, Mount Rushmore, protrudes from the granite as a true "Shrine of Democracy" with the faces of George Washington, commander of the Revolutionary Army and first United States President; Thomas Jefferson, founder of the Declaration of Independence; Abraham Lincoln, abolisher of slavery; and Theodore Roosevelt, corruption reformer and wildlife conservationist.
