77.Mount Rushmore is perhaps one of North America’s most distinguished and famous landmarks, right after the Statue
of Liberty. It features the busts of four U.S. Presidents, Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt.
This place has an interesting story. First, a New York lawyer named Charles (E) Rushmore visited the Black Hills in
1885. He asked a local the name of the granite mountain before them. Since the peak had no name, the man replied
humorously, “Mount Rushmore.” The name has never been changed since! In 1923 state historian Doane Robinson
suggested carving some giant statues in South Dakota’s Black Hills. However, the formations chosen, known as the
Needles, were too fragile, and the sculptor, Mr. Gutzon Borglum, decided to use the granite mountain instead. Born in a
family of Danish Mormons in Idaho in 1867, Borglum studied art in Paris and enjoyed moderate fame as a sculptor after
remodeling the torch for the Statue of Liberty. Borglum chose the presidents “in commemoration of the foundation,
preservation and continental expansion of the United States.” President Calvin Coolidge dedicated the memorial in 1927.
At this very moment, near this mountain, there is another colossal monument in progress: the Crazy Horse
Memorial, to honor this courageous Indian leader. In this way, history is preserved, as big as the heritage is, to be shared
with everyone in an attractive way.
【題組】77 What is the second paragraph mainly about?
(A) A brief history of Mount Rushmore.
(B) The geographical features of Mount Rushmore.
(C) Other attractions near Mount Rushmore.
(D) A comparison between Mount Rushmore and the Statue of Liberty.

(A) It is better than the other monuments. (B) It will change to an Indian name.
(C) It is still under construction. (D) It gives more fun to the tourists.
