Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, constructed between 1927 and 1941, is world famous with 60 foot head sculptures of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.
Millions have visited Mount Rushmore, and there has been discussion at times about the concept of a second Mount Rushmore, although not clear where it would be, but likely location might be in Colorado in the Rocky Mountains, a massive undertaking if ever agreed upon to do!
The question beyond whether there should be a second such monument to four more Presidents is what Presidents should grace such a monument.
In this author’s and blogger’s view, the likely choices should be the following:
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945)
Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969)
John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)
Barack Obama (1961- )
FDR, Ike, and JFK have been seen as highly deserving, and Obama was a turning point, for sure, in Presidential history.
Not everyone would be contented with these choices, but it would seem that these four Presidents would make the best combination.
