Growing up in the shadow of Mount Rushmore
Lincoln Borglum was a young boy when his father, the great sculptor Gutzon Borglum, suggested to a group of South Dakota businessmen that he should carve the faces of four presidents into a side of a mountain as an attraction for tourists. But Mount Rushmore would never be finished by Gutzon. It would be his son who would complete the fourteen-year task and present America with one of its most iconic symbols.

The story of the creation of the iconic national symbol traces how artist Gutzon Borglum convinced a group of South Dakota businessmen to finance his death-defying Mount Rushmore sculpture of four U.S. presidents, a 14-year task that was ultimately completed by his son.
