A Mountain Of A Man

Several hundred people attended a unveiling and dedication ceremony of the completed face of the Crazy Horse Memorial on Thunderhead Mountain.

Work on the monument began June 3, 1948. Fifty years later, it still may be 50 years from completion.

The finished work will depict Crazy Horse astride his horse, pointing to the Souix Indian's Black Hills. The sculpture will be 563 feet high and almost twice the size of the Statue of Liberty. It's so big that all four presidents from nearby Mount Rushmore could fit inside Crazy Horse's head.
