THIS SUMMER MY FAMILY VISITED MOUNT RUSHMORE IN SOUTH DAKOTA. THIS MOUNTAIN HAS THE HEADS OF FOUR PRESIDENTS CARVED INTO THE SIDE. A FATHER AND SON DESIGNED AND CARVED THE MONUMENT, WITH THE HELP OF OTHER WORKERS. IT TOOK 14 YEARS! GEORGE WASHINGTON IS ON THE LEFT. HE WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED. AT THE OTHER END SITS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, THE PRESIDENT WHO FREED THE SLAVES. IN THE MIDDLE YOU HAVE TEDDY ROOSEVELT AND THOMAS JEFFERSON. ROOSEVELT EXPANDED THE NAVAL FLEET, WORKED TO CREATE THE PANAMA CANAL, AND PLAYED A BIG ROLE IN THE CREATION OF MANY NATIONAL PARKS AND MONUMENTS. JEFFERSON WAS THE MAIN AUTHOR OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. THIS IS HENRY BONOMOLO FROM VENTANA VISTA FOR BEAR ESSENTIAL NEWS.
