The monument represents more than just four great presidents, McGee-Ballinger said. It's a theme of the nation's history and unity. Washington represents the nation's founding. Jefferson, who completed the Louisiana Purchase, represents expansion. Lincoln symbolizes preservation. And Roosevelt represents conservation and the emergence of the United States as a world power. Today, there are ranger tours and a "cadre of activities" that will happen July 3-4, including actors representing the four presidents, McGee-Ballinger said. At night, through Sept. 30, there's a lighting ceremony on the four faces
