Mound Builders

I refer to the mounds situated at the head of the St. Clair river, and at the foot of lake Huron. They extend in continuous succession for about one mile and one-half northward, as I have satisfactorily determined. Strange to say those who lived in their immediate vicinity, knew nothing of their character. A paper which I wrote on the subject, embodying the principal facts, subsequently formed a part of the sixth annual report of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, and was afterward copied into several of the leading periodicals of the country, including the American Journal of Science. The general publicity thus given the discoveries precludes the necessity of more than a passing notice here. The numerous mounds, with few exceptions, are of similar character, having been largely used for burial purposes.
