La Crosse County – COMPOSED OF GIANTS
FIVE BODIES OF AN ANCIENT RACE NEAR LACROSSE WISCONSIN
La Crosse, WI fifty skeletons believed to be a part of mysterious tribesmen of a prehistoric race have been unearthed by a party of La Crosse state normal school graduates on the farm of Alois White, a few miles south of this city. The skeletons were taken from five mounds which were excavated. Among the significant discoveries made by the students was the uncovering of a number of copper arrowheads and two of three copper knives. This it is claimed, must dispel the popular belief that the mound builders anteceded the whites. The size of the skeletons, and the weight and thickness of the bones indicate that this early race was composed of giants. Most of the skeletons were more than six feet long and the bones are much heavier than those of the modern white men.
