There it is, Crazy Horse standing 6,532 feet tall. I think the sculpture is really cool and you should visit it if you get the chance. Crazy Horse is the 27th tallest mountain in all of South Dakota. The sculptor, Korczak Ziolkowski, designed Crazy Horse. Crazy Horse is expected to be done in 15 to 20 years, though Ziolkowski died when he was only 34.

Crazy Horses was designed to honor the Indian Chief that fought a Great War in the 1870s as they fought against the U.S. government for their land. The war was fought in the Black Hills. The Native Americans won this war against the U.S.

Born in Rapid City, South Dakota, Crazy Horse died on September 5, 1877. Crazy Horse fought in the battle against the government called Little Bighorn. They fought the war because the government was taking the Native Americans’ land. That was one reason that Crazy Horse fought in the war called Little Bighorn as well as the loss of their culture.

It is a very amazing sight, and I hope you see it. They are supposed to get done in the next 15 to 20 years. But that might not happen because the government doesn’t fund this monument.

There you are looking at the really cool and neat Crazy Horse. I think it is really cool and you should visit it if you get the chance. Crazy horse is CRAZY huge; it is the 27th tallest mountain in South Dakota, and is the only one to be carved into a great Indian chief. Korczak Ziolkowski, the sculptor who started the statue Crazy Horse, but he unfortunately he died on October 20th 1982, but his great sculpture continues his great legacy. He has been dead for 35 years and they are still working on it, and his kids are doing most of the job. Crazy Horse is 6,532 ft tall; that is amazingly tall! It is an amazing place to be, and I wish to see it again. They are supposed to be done in around 15 to 20 years. But that is unlikely because the government doesn’t fund this monument. My opinion on the matter is just that Mount Rushmore is a great historic reminder.

Crazy Horse, an Indian Chief, fought in the Great War around the 1870s, they battled the whites for their land and other reasons, it was a hard fought and different from other wars but they still won. The Native Americans mostly fought on top of the Black Hills, which is why it was chosen to put this statue here. The Black Hills are the ground of Crazy Horse Monument and Mount Rushmore and will be his land forever since marked by his monument. They say he was one of the greatest Native American leaders of all time. That is a hard title to have and an amazing title to keep, because of how many tribes and Indian people there once were. Crazy Horse died on September 5, 1877 and it was a great loss to the Indians and history. Sadly, I don’t know when he was born, but I do know that he was born in Rapid City. Crazy Horse fought bravely in the battle against the prosecutors called Little Bighorn, it is very famous battle. The whites harassed the Native Americans for many years and they finally snapped: they decide to do the most common way, WAR! That is the reason why the battle of Little Bighorn was fought.
