We've all seen it. Either in person or in pictures. It's an impressive American icon commemorating our greatest presidents. It's Mount Rushmore that commemorates the lives of Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson with carved stone faces.
But how did it come about? Why those
particular presidents and why was it carved out of a solid mountain cliff in the
Black Hills of South Dakota?
Mill Creek Entertainment presents:
Monument Men The Road To Rushmore, a seven-part DVD series that looks at the
men behind this national monument.
The series follows the history behind the stone as each president's life and
contributions to our nation is explained and documented.
The series also examines the men and creativity behind Mount Rushmore and
how it came about. History comes alive
as viewers watch both the monument and our history come alive. Included is a visit to the nearby Crazy Horse
Memorial shown through a virtual tour just like Mount Rushmore.
The U.S. Calvary was one of the pivotal forces that helped shape our
country. The U.S. Calvary History OF
America's Mounted Forces DVD collection

Wars and follows through to modern times stopping at the Old West, The Rough Riders

But, the mission remains the same: to protect our shores and people from
attack whether it be from abroad or within our own borders.
