If we ever wanted a film “National Treasure” to be real, I’m about to make your dreams come true.
In a Black Hills of South Dakota sits one of a many iconic monuments in America. Carved into a side of a mountain, a stately Mount Rushmore is visited by thousands of people from opposite a nation and around a universe year after year, and for good reason. It is truly a steer to behold. But here’s something we competence not know about this American treasure.
There’s a tip room tucked divided behind Lincoln’s head.
The prophesy of a monument’s designer, Gutzon Borglum, a room was designed to reason copies of America’s many dedicated documents.
Sadly, a room wasn’t finished until decades after he died.
Inside is a wooden box holding a U.S. Constitution, a Declaration of Independence, a Bill of Rights, Borglum’s biography, and brief descriptions of any boss featured on a monument.
The room is hermetic with a 1,200-pound chunk chunk for protection.
Although a colonnade doesn’t totally simulate Borglum’s prophesy since it’s blank some elaborate designs, he can rest easy meaningful that a aliens that revisit a world 10,000 years from now will know who Teddy Roosevelt was.
I feel like we need to get Nicolas Cage to Rushmore right now! This is film material.
