Mount Rushmore
  • Rushmore is the mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota
  • It’s a mountain which has the Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt are carvedin the rock.
  • It is important because it shows the faces of some of our most important presidents.
  • Gutzon Borglum and 400 workers are the people responsible for building this sculpture in Mount Rushmore.
  • This site represents that anything can be done if you put your mind to it, because the Presidents sculpted surely accomplished that which seemed impossible.

Smithsonian Institutes
  • There are several locations of the institutes Several being Washington, DC.

  • The preservation of the worlds past history is important to the knowledge we have in the future.
  • Congress created The Smithsonian institutes in 1842.
  • In all honesty I think Institutes of this nature are there to help the people that come after us remember things of the past. The continuation of history as a race is carried out by these places.

yellowstone national park1
Yellowstone National Park
  • Yellowstone National Park is located on the Wyoming and Montana boundary.
  • Yellowstone is a protected National Park, that is geologically active.
  • It’s a National Park and therefore the wild life and habitat is protected from man.
  • Yellowstone was the first National Park established by U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872.
  • I think Yellowstone is one of only places Americans can go in the lower 48 and see the spectacular geological events.

the grand canyon1
The Grand Canyon
  • The Grand Canyon is located in Coconino County, Colorado.
  • The Grand Canyon is a very large canyon carved by the Colorado River.
  • The importance lies in the Wild Life, and the Hover Dam on the Colorado River.
  • Of course the canyon was made entirely by nature, but President Roosevelt was the first to seek to protect it from man.
  • I think The Grand Canyon is a prime example of how powerful mother nature can be and that it isn’t mans place to mess with her.

Gettysburg National Park
  • Gettysburg Nation Park is in Adams County, Pennsylvania.
  • The memorial, battlefield and cemetery of The Battle Of Gettysburg.
  • This battle was one of the biggest loses the Civil War had seen and it is important to honor those who fought. This was also a turning point for the war.
  • A group of concerned citizens established the Gettysburg Battlefield Memorial Association who's purpose was to preserve areas as a memorial to the Union Army.
  • I think this is a place to not only remember the soldiers but also to remember what out country came from and where it’s going.
