  •  Crazy Horse Memorial

     

    Near Mt. Rushmore, a statue of Crazy Horse, a hero for Native Americans, is being blasted from the hills. The project started in 1948 and it is still far from being finished.

    Crazy Horse was born in 1840, near Rapid City, South Dakota. He was a Sioux Indian Chief. 

    Sioux fought against removal to reservations . In 1876 he joined with Cheyenne forces in a surprise attack against General George Crook; then he joined Chief Sitting Bull for the Battle of the Little Big Horn. After the Indian victory, the American army decided to get revenge. Sitting Bull went to Canada with his tribe and Crazy Horse stayed in South Dakota and he refused to move to a reservation in the Black Hills. But in 1877, he surrendered and he was eventually killed by American soldiers.

    alt=Description de l'image Frederic Remington.jpg.

    Frederic Remington (October 4, 1861 - December 26, 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer. He was interested in the Old American West. He painted Native Americans, cowboys, soldiers, horses, and other aspects of life in the American West.

    He was born in the state of New York. When he was twenty years old, he travelled to North and South Dakota, Montana (3 of the 5 states which formed the Great Plains with Wyoming and Nebraska...). He wanted to paint "The frontier" because it disappeared.

    Here are some of his works of art (click on the title to enlarge the painting).
