Mass Grave of 4,000 Men and Women Mound Builders Uncovered in Niagara County, New York

Mass Grave of 4,000 Men and Women Mound Builders Uncovered in Niagara County, New York

According to the Walum Olum or Red Record of the Lene Lenape (Algonquin)  their people were bottled up in Canada, but wished to migrate south into the lands of the mound builders. A war ensued of great slaughter of the mound builders whose main line of defense was on the south shores of the Great Lakes.  Mormons tell a similar story of battle between the Nephites and Lamanites in the same areas.

History of Niagara County, New York 1878,
     “A search enabled them to come to a pit, but a slight distance from the surface. The top of the pit was covered with slabs of the Medina Sandstone, and was twenty-four feet square by four and a half in depth- the planes agreeing with the four cardinal points. It was filled with human bones of both sexes and all ages. They dug down at one extremity, and found the same layers to extend to the bottom, which was the same dry loam, and from their calculations they deduced that at least four thousand souls had perished one great massacre.  In one skull two flint arrowheads were found, and many had the appearance of having been fractured and cleft open by a sudden blow. They were piled in regular layers, but with no regard to size.”
