What Secrets Does Mount Rushmore Chamber Holds?

Complications

The memorial at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota under construction. The four heads are those of Presidents George Washington (1732 – 1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826), Theodore Roosevelt (1858 – 1919) and Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865). (Photo by MPI/Getty Images)

We all can imagine how hard it is to carve four faces in a rock mountain. The measurements have to be the perfect. Even an inch of wrong measurement would lead to disruption of whole project. Every step was to be taken by total precision. Not a single mistake could be afforded after all the efforts.
When they couldn’t fit Jefferson in the monument, whole project stopped. They planned on carving four presidents and now they didn’t have enough space for the fourth one. This was turning into a disaster.
In original plans Thomas Jefferson’s face was placed right from George Washington but later shifted. Why would they do that?
