Monument Men: The Road to Rushmore (2015) – By Jason S. Lockard


There are many amazing monuments in this great country of America, but probably the one that stands out above the rest is Mount Rushmore. Mill Creek Entertainment’s newest release Monument Men takes a look at these men who are craved into the side of the mountain and how they that helped shape our nation.

This 2 Disc DVD set features 7 documentaries. The first disc explores the lives of the four men enshrined in South Dakota on the side of the mountain called Rushmore. Those four men are presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt. These biographies give a detailed look into the lives of these men and what made them worthy to be remembered on Mount Rushmore.

The collection doesn’t stop there though. On disc two the documentaries go into greater detail on the making of Mount Rushmore and about the Crazy Horse Memorial; a monument to the great native American war leader of the Oglala Lakota.

This collection is great for all history fans and for those wanting to know more about these great men. This 2 disc DVD set is in great quality, easy to access menus and would make a great addition to anyone’s history library.

I highly recommend heading over to today and picking up a copy of this awesome 7 part documentary. You won’t be disappointed!
