No, this is no joke, I am seriously looking for any help in my efforts.
North American Giants.
In Wisconsin at Dresbach and LaCrescent Minnesota (these are tiny little towns bordering the Mississippi river) Both have alleged Giant discoveries
in the 1800's:
"At LeCrescent, Wisconsin(Minnesota), mounds were found to contain giant bones. Five miles north near Dresbach, the bones of people over 8 feet tall
were found in huge earthworks."
Infact I atleast five different accounts of 'giant' discoveries are in Minnesota alone:
'Ten skeletons "of both sexes and of gigantic size" were taken from a mound at Warren, Minnesota, 1883. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, May 23, 1883).
In Minnesota, 1888, were discovered remains of seven skeletons 7 to 8 feet tall. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, June 29, 1888) .
The skeleton of a huge man was uncovered at the Beckley farm, Lake Koronis, Minnesota; while at Moose Island and Pine City, bones of other giants came
to light. (St. Paul Globe, Aug. 12, 1896).
In Clearwater Minnesota, the skeletons of seven giants were found in mounds. These had receding foreheads and complete double dentition.
At LeCrescent, Wisconsin, mounds were found to contain giant bones. Five miles north near Dresbach, the bones of people over 8 feet tall were found in
huge earthworks. '
(those are just mere samples taken from local Minnesota News Paper clippings in the mid to late 1800's).
Even more impressive is the discovery in Wisconsin recorded by the New York Times in 1912:
An article in the New York Times for May 4, 1912, reports that eighteen skeletons were found while excavating a mound near Lake Delavan, Wisconson.
The remains of the males were those of giants, with remarkably large heads, while the woman were of normal size with smaller heads.
Subsequent news articles of the find described the males as possessed of sloping foreheads with nasal bones that protruded far above the cheekbones.
"Their jawbones were long and pointed, bearing a minute resemblance to the head of a monkey. The teeth in front of the jaw are regular molars."
The New York Times index proves a good reference resource.
Skeptics would rather have you believe these accounts have no basis and are either miss-interpritation or hoaxes. Yes there have been hoaxes in the
past (The famous Cardif Giant and Piltdown man for example) but I can list over 100 accounts of 'giant' discoveries in the US alone. How could they
all be hoaxes and misidentifications?
Even if we were to allow for some of these to have been
News Paper exaggeration or hoaxes, we would still be left with a tremendous amount of documented evidence to show that these beings existed at some
time in the past.
And also, If we had such respected news papers as 'The New York Times' reporting these types of discoveries on up to the 30's, whose to doubt the
The Smithsonian Institute also made many of these 'giant' discoveries in Ohio and the east-coast as reported below:
'from Ancient Man: A Handbook of Puzzling Artifacts, William R Corliss, Sourcebook Project, 1978.
American Antiquarian, 7:52, 1885.
A large Indian mound near the town of Gasterville, Pa., has recently been opened and examined by a committee of scientists sent out from the
Smithsonian Institute. At some depth from the surface a kind of vault was found in which was discovered the skeleton of a giant measuring seven feet
two inches. His hair was coarse and jet black, and hung to the waist, the brow being ornamented with a copper crown. The skeleton was remarkably well
preserved. Near it were also found the bodies of several children of various sizes, the remains being covered with beads made of bone of some kind.
Upon removing these, the bodies were seen to be enclosed in a net-work of straw or reeds, and beneath this was a covering of the skin of some animal.
On the stones which covered the vault were carved inscriptions, and these when deciphered, will doubtless lift the veil that now shrouds the history
of the race of people that one time inhabited this part of the American continent. The relics have been carefully packed and forwarded to the
Smithsonian Institute, and they are said to be the most interesting collection ever found in the United States. The explorers are now at work on
another mound in Barton county, Pa.'
I have over 100 documented accounts(saved on my computer as text file) of giants being discovered not only in the US but in Mexico, South America,
Europe, China ,Africa, and especialy Australia.
to read it would make you wonder, whose got the skeletons? what happened to the artifacts?
Not only do we have documented discoveries of the giants in the US. We also have the native american Myths and legends of the giants:
And what of the legends of the Allegewi?
The oral traditions of the Delaware and the Sioux Indians tell of a race of "great stature, but cowardly" with whom they entered into conflict. The
Allegheny River and Mountains are named after the Allegewi, but the Iroquois Confederacy drove the giants out of their strong, walled cities, and the
Sioux finished them off when they attempted to relocate in what is now Minnesota.
There are also legends of a race of redheaded 8 foot cannibal warriors called the 'SI-TE-CA' by local natives.
they allegedly inhabited the southwest, and their remains have been found at Lovelock Nevada in 1911-1912.
