Interesting view of Mt. Rushmore on the new Mt. Rushmore Quarter.

Here’s David Croft, Acting Associate Director for Manufacturing of the U.S. Mint, introducing the coin yesterday in Custer, South Dakota.

(Wow; how much history is packed in that? Too little of it in the high school texts.  Who is on Rushmore?  Who made the sculptures on Rushmore, and when?  After whom is Custer, South Dakota, named, and why?)
