"Oh, Wisconsin. Beneath your feet is an ocean of
"They (railroad crews) knocked the top off of the small
hill called Butte Des Morts. It was full of skeletons.
Tracks were laid across the cut and The combined
bones and rock became the track bed." - a diary
description of the 19th century decapitation of a
section of "the hill of the dead"(Butte Des Morts) on the
shore of Little Lake Butte Des Morts in Neenah.
The hill is reputed to hold the piled up corpses of Fox
Indians killed during a battle against the French and
their Indian Allies in the Fox/French Wars. More likely,
the hill had been part of a long standing burial ground
and contained the bones of the ancient mound builders.
Mounds are everywhere, their remains may be
beneath your feet right as you read this. In the mid to
late 19th century countless mounds were plowed over
by farmers. Road crews crushed bones into aggregate
for road and railroad beds. It's safe to say that all of
Wisconsin's primary roads contain shattered bits of
the bones of the ancient dead.

Opportunities to discover more about these mounds and their
builders disappear daily as erosion, farming, urban
development, and looting continue to degrade these sites.
Untold numbers of the old monuments have already been lost
and secrets of our nation's past have vanished with them. The
mounds that remain stand as a testament to the vitality,
diversity, and creativity of their makers, who developed the
complex societies of ancient past.
