Gutzon Borglum didn’t just wanted to carve faces on mountain, he wanted to do more. He wanted people not to just visit this monument but also he wanted them to learn.
His very first design was adding the map of Louisiana purchase with four faces inside the map. he wanted to carve some great incident that took place in the country which people forgot as the time passed by. He wanted to give knowledge too.
This made it very clear that he was in love with his country and he wanted people to know about the great country they are living in.
