The statues are all life size, right down to Li'l James Madison who was only 5'2" tall, which helps to give you a great idea of what they really looked like. But more than just showing their appearance, the statues actually show you a bit more about who each president was as a person. The various statues are all found in different poses and are in the midst of different activities, which all convey something about the presidency or the personality of each figure. Their true-to-life size and depiction in normal, more casual poses almost gives the feeling that you've just walked up to this person on the street and said hello.
I'll just highlight some of my favorite statues here. I was going to include all of them, but then I thought that would be too many photos for one article, which would take forever to load on your computer, right?
Anyway, if I leave out your favorite president, you can go to this page on Rapid City's website to see photos and a short description of each of them. There's also a map of everyone's locations at the bottom of the page.
One of the most iconic statues is that of Harry Truman. Unless you completely slept through history class, you should recognize his pose from the famous photo of him on the day he was re-elected holding up a newspaper that erroneously announced his defeat.
