I've selected the great monument of Mt. Rushmore as my artifact. I selected this because it's a prestigious monument in the history of our country. Mt. Rushmore is conducted for 4 presidents, Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, & Roosevelt, and is sitting in the mountainous regions of South Dakota. I'm going to look into who made this monument, who's idea it was, why those presidents were selected, why was it placed in South Dakota instead of DC with the rest of the presidential monuments. With this project I hope to learn about Mt. Rushmore and I hope to be able to experience the design process of it and be able to share my experience with those who are unaware as well.
