Lowcountry man cuts Lincoln Memorial lawn; Earlier: Takes shoes off with chainsaw

By now we think you've heard the name of Chris Cox, a Mount Pleasant man who was peeved to see the National Mall fall into landscape disrepair during the shutdown and took to cutting and cleaning the lawn around the Lincoln Memorial — all while using himself as a mount for the South Carolina flag.

Cox is known locally for running "Cox Carving" where he shapes wood using a chainsaw, and those items can be seen in this January video where the impassioned Washington Red Skins fan cuts off his shoe with a chainsaw.

Check out the video below.

Huge props to Cox for taking action on a national monument mess, and we're glad to see he's an all around passionate guy — and keep an eye out for his red truck driving around the Lowcountry, it'll likely be loaded with his carvings for sale.
