Stumbled into the below text published in a book dated with 1798 (may be). As you can see, the author was talking about some "capital town" and "power and grandeur of the ancients".
- Carrying earth by hand in bags, thousands of workers built the 55 ft high Great Temple Mound on a high bluff overlooking the floodplain of the Ocmulgee River.
- LOL. The above sentence is from the wiki article.
- Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park - Wikipedia
- You can see some additional Ocmulgee Mounds photographs here.
I am not sure how these hills could warrant this "power and grandeur of the ancients" description.
- Most importantly, where are the ruins of a "capital town"?
- How did they know it was a capital?
KD: Any idea what ruins of a "capital town" we have at the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park?
