“Beautiful Statue and Neat history”

Reviewed 14 July 2012

Nice statue but not a lot of explanation as to why these individuals were chosen to be honored

We just returned from South Dakota where we saw the Fighting Horses, Crazy Horse & Mt. Rushmore. Ben 0844 has the information wrong: The Fighting Horses was created by Korczak Ziolkowski who spent half his life working on Crazy Horse, NOT Mt. Rushmore. Mt. Rushmore was sculpted by Gutzon Borglum.

Located on the Capitol Grounds off Capitol Lake, this statue was built in memory of Governor George Mickelson and several other important South Dakota men who died in a tragic airplane accident in 1993. This is a beautiful statue of stallions fighting fiercely and bravely.

I grew up in Pierre and remember distinctly when they built this. I was there for the memorial and sang with the Capitol City Children's Chorus to remember the former governor. I think it is beautiful and enjoy sitting by it. They put up some nice flower displays around it too along with the Capitol Lake right next to it. I enjoy it.
