BY: MATTHEW SPEIGHTS

BUILDING

The building started in 1927 and ended in 1941. 400 workers had to travel up 500 steps to get to the site where they were carving. The mountain has 4 presidents faces carved right into the side of the rock commemorating George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.

HISTORY

There has been a lot of controversy over this subject because the US gave the land Mount Rushmore is built on to the Lakota native Americans. Sal reacts to this in a negative way because she thinks the land belongs to the native Americans so they should have a face on the mountain.
