Why Is This Field Full of Huge Presidents?

........................... from National Geographic .....................

When President’s Park closed in 2010, Howard Hankins was called in to removed 43 gigantic busts of U.S. presidents from the themed attraction. Instead of crushing the 20-foot statues, he decided to keep them on his property, hoping to gather enough funds to display them to the public once again. Now Hankins is in a race against time as the cement heads erode before his eyes.

Howard Hankins is on a quest to save the U.S. Presidents. In 2013, he rescued 43 enormous busts from a failed tourist attraction near his Virginia farm. Watching the 20-foot tall statues crumble in his field, Hankins dreams of one day restoring them to their former glory. In this quirky short film by Adam Roffman, meet the unlikely hero working to preserve these “giants of men” and hear his patriotic enthusiasm for America's great leaders.
