THE MOUND BUILDERS - WHO WERE THEY?
Mary Sutherland Copyright 2005

HISTORY OF THE MOUND BUILDERS










For reasons only known to them, scholars decided to change history and give credit to the Native American Indian as the builder of the earthen mounds.  During its initial  phase , the  people
refused to belief it, but later generations in the mid-nineteenth century came to acdept it. Albert Gallatin , founder of the American  Ethnological Society of New York and Wisconsin naturalist,
was one of the first to push this unpopular later position.  However, Caleb Atwater published
Description of the Antiquities in the State of Ohio and other  Western States (1820) and  
advanced the idea that the mounds were built by a culture much more advanced than the American Indians. Josiah Priest,
'Antiquities and Discoveries of the West', argued that the mounds
were built by the Lost Tribes of Israel, wandering Egyptians, Greeks and  other groups unassociated with the American Indian. William Pidgeon's
' Tradition of De-Coo-Dah'  (1858) , states
that  De-Coo-Dah told him of an ancient race of mound building people who were  much more numerous than the present Indians.

3000 BC Megalithic cultures arise around 4500 BC; then on both continents, at the very same time, copper-using Beaker-inspired cultures arise in 3000 BC.

1500 BC Next, the Beaker Groups flee from conquest in 1500 BC, and their Beaker cultural traits begin to be widespread in North America; finally in both Europe and the New World, at
the very same time,

700 BC  Beaker-derived cultures collapse in 700 BC.

Copper Trade in the Great Lakes Region - King David and King Solomon

In the book Bronze Age America, the late Dr. Barry Fell (Professor Emeritus of Harvard University) records that copper trading between ancient North America and the Old World was extant
prior to and DURING THE REIGN OF KING DAVID! "His book cites evidence from ancient inscriptions that Norse kings carried on a copper trade with the New World in the St. Lawrence River
as early as 1700 B.C., seven centuries prior to the reign of King David over Israel"  There is, clear evidence that David's allies, the Canaanite Phoenicians, were included in the New World
copper trade and that some of David's huge stockpile of copper ore came from the Phoenician's North American trading routes.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Straits of Gibraltar (Pillars of Hercules), and the nearby Phoenician colony of Gades
(Cadiz) were the focal points of the Iberian Peninsula. Northern Europeans trading or
moving south were channelled there, where the Mediterranean crossing was the shortest.
The
ships of the Phoenicians and their colonies were large and seaworthy, as were other
ancient Mediterranean ships, fully capable of sailing in the Atlantic Ocean. (Gloria Farley )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Around the northern shore of Lake Superior, and on the adjacent Ile Royale, there are approximately 5,000 ancient copper mine workings. In 1953 and 1956 Professor Roy Drier led two
Michigan Mining and Technology expeditions to the sites. Charcoal found at the base of the ancient mining pits yielded radio carbon dates indicating that the mines had been operated
between 2000 B.C. and 1000 B.C...The most conservative estimates by mining engineers show that at least 500 million pounds of metallic copper were removed over that time span, and
there is no evidence as to what became of it. Bronze Age America. NY: Wallaby, 1976. P. 261.

The Bible states that  ancient Israel, under King David, was stockpiling massive quantities of
copper ore around 1,000 B.C.  Sources also confirm  that the North American copper mines ran
out of ore during the reign of Solomon. The connection between the two should be obvious.

Fischer Park Conical  Mound
30326 Durand Ave (Hwy 11) Off
Browns Lake . The Native
Americans called Browns Lake  -  
'Lake of the Shining Arrow'
There are no markers whatsoever
to give reference to the beautiful
mounds in the park!  What
pleasure people could take in the
mounds - if they only knew..
Browns Lake Conical Mound   - Located This  second mound is located off Browns
Lake on Hwy W . This one seems to have been used several times. One as an
'ancient' mound - then a Native American Burial Mound - then a cemetery dating early
1800's. When we first started reporting this cemetery, it was unkept with broken
tombstones. Since then it has been cleaned with the  broken tombstones removed.  
Unfortunately, no markers were set to mark the graves of which had  the tombstones
removed.   As the story goes, the remains of the Native Americans were damaged and
discarded as they made way for the new wave of tenants . This seems to be one of the
higher points overlooking Burlington .  *Mounds all around the Browns Lake Area.
However -No Markers indicating Mounds are here .
A race, that long has passed away ,Built them ...
a disciplined and populous race
Heaped, with long toil, the earth.
The red man came...
The roaming hunter tribes, warlike and fierce,
And the mound-builders vanished from the earth.
The gopher mines the ground Where stood the swarming cities.
All is gone; Allâ save the piles of earth that hold their bones,
The platforms where they worshipped unknown gods.

Mary Sutherland has named this mound -
Hill Crest Mound
The above Burlington photo bears a striking resemblance to both the ancient pre-historic sites of Aztalan and Cahokia.  Although you cannot see it in this photo, just like Cahokia
and Aztalan, the Hillcrest Mounds faces a large lake known as Echo Lake which is fed by Honey Creek and the White River.
Photo on Left is Cahokia Mounds - east of St. Louis MO
and the Photo on the bottom is of Aztalan which is almost identical to
the Hill Crest Mound of Burlington

This earliest known imprint of the Mormons who followed James J. Strang is a rare facsimile of the brass plates, which
in 1845 Strang purportedly discovered buried in a hillside beneath the roots of a giant oak tree at Voree, Wisconsin
Territory and which were lost at the beginning of this century.
The area is now known as Morman Road in Burlington, Wisconsin.
Revelations...Truths Revealed by Mary Sutherland
In accordance with the Jewish Kabbalists, the civilization of Atlantis was advanced far beyond ours and had
brought about their own destruction by disregarding the wisdom of the great teachers, choosing power and
materialism over transcendence.
On the back of a dollar bill, one can find a pyramid and the all-seeing Eye of Horus which strongly suggests
that not only were our founding fathers the  ‘Followers of Horus” but believed it was their destiny to re-build
this nation from the ‘ashes of the Phoenix’.
Sir Francis Bacon asserted in his book, New Atlantis, that whatever was going to be built in North America
would be Atlantean in its basic archetypal pattern and destiny path, and at some point it would rise to the
level of global dominion. Then it would, like ancient Atlantis, have to make a choice between power ‘for the
sake of service’ and power for the ‘sake of more power’… and as it decided, ‘the fate of the world
would be determined.’
In the writing of this book, it is my desire to enlighten the reader on the true history of North America and our
ancestral heritage that took root back when the people of this earth lived together as “one nation…on one
continent( before it divided into the continents we have today) …under the ‘Law of One’…”  
The United States ‘Pledge of Allegiance’, “One Nation… Indivisible…with Liberty and Justice for All”
strongly indicates that our founding fathers not only knew the true history of North America, but believed this
country to be the homeland of ancient Atlantis.

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
