Mount Rushmore

If these guys are not Lewis and Clark, who are they and what are they doing on my trip?
I know that Mount Rushmore and the Badlands are not usually associated with Lewis and Clark, but they are so significant in both history and geography and I was very near, I just had to visit them.
I want you to enjoy the photographs AND learn a bit about them.  First of all, who are those guys carved on the mountain? Which face was completed first ? Which one last?
Since I am not assigning this as a homework problem, I will just give you the answers, but I still want you to learn them.
The men are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.
Washington’s face was completed in 1930, Jefferson in 1936, Lincoln in 1937, and Roosevelt in 1939.
