Shelby County – Gigantic Proportions


F. C. Stephenson, Esq., who lives 9 miles south of Memphis. has taken from a mound a skeleton of gigantic proportions, and with it vases of terracotta beautifully colored and as fresh as if painted yesterday.

What if the discovery of the gigantic skeleton in Tennessee leads to more significant findings in the area?Are these vases of terracotta an indication of a sophisticated prehistoric civilization in the region?Where there giants living in the area during prehistoric times, or is this an isolated case?

  1. Tennessee, Shelby County, South Memphis, 1874.
