Aboriginal Monuments of New York
Many evidences of ancient labor and skill– earth-works, entrenched hills, and occasional mounds, or tumuli– are found in the western parts of New York and Pennsylvania, upon the upper tributaries of the Ohio, and along the shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario. History is mute concerning these monuments and their origins are involved in impenetrable mystery. This reprint of an 1849 work by the Smithsonian Institution covers the results of original surveys and explorations of these monuments. Bonus: Charles Whittlesey’s excellent work on the copper mines of Upper Michigan is included as an addendum.
