South Dakota unveil three more bronze statues of its former governors during an event in the state Capitol rotunda Friday.

Former Govs. Warren E. Green, Nils A. Boe and M. Michael Rounds are the newest additions in the Trail of Governors series.

Current Gov. Dennis Daugaard participated in the event with Rounds, now a sitting U.S. senator.

The statues will join others on the trail that goes through Pierre and the Capitol's grounds. It features a dozen statues now, with three commissioned each year by the trail's nonprofit foundation using individual and business donations.
