Some 4,500 years ago,
at the behest of the pharaoh Khufu,
Egyptian workers erected the Great Pyramid of Giza. Standing 455
feet tall and weighing in at 5.9 million tons, it is the only one of
the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing today.

4,400 years later, workers in rural central Pennsylvania erected a
31-foot high, 300-ton stone pyramid in the gap of Tuscarora Mountain
near tiny Mercersburg. This pyramid, which I visited recently, might
very well be the greatest wonder in the American presidential world.
I was left in sheer wonderment after learning it was built to honor
one of the worst chief executives this country has ever known—our
15th president, James Buchanan.
