Many newspaper stories in the United States during the 1800s in the early 1900s were sensational, in every sense of the word. Fairy tales are incredible and written in an era when journalism had in mind all the newspapers sold, though it was cursed. But the following stories all have to do with giants or underground cities, so they should be told again.
The most famous of these reports appeared in the April 5, 1909 issue of the Arizona Gazette, under the heading “Studies in the Grand Canyon.” The conductor G.Ye. Kinkaid discovered a huge underground citadel, rafting along the Colorado River. Exploring a tunnel that stretched almost a mile underground, Kincaid found this citadel, which was filled with plates carved by some types of hieroglyphs, and a house for a stone statue that he described as resembling a Buddha. Copper weapons lined the walls, but the most intriguing aspect of this ancient dwelling / place of worship / tomb was mummies, all wrapped in dark cloth. The mummies were supposedly over nine feet. To feed the fire of the conspiracy and not allow anyone to find the giants themselves of the citadel, the United States government allegedly closed this canyon area with public opinion.
But this famous story of the American giants is not alone.
The New York Times reported the skeleton of a nine-foot-tall man found on a hill near Maple Creek, Wisconsin, in December 1897. The Times also published the story “Strange skeletons”, found at Lake Delevan, Wisconsin, on May 4, 1912, the question. Skulls of giant skeletons, extracted from the mound, had a slight similarity to the head of a monkey.
But on April 9, 1885, in The New York Times, entitled “Missouri Burial City”: a strange discovery in a coal mine near Moberly, discovered a find that preceded the alleged citadel in the Grand Canyon by the age of 24. Moberly, the largest city in Randolph County, Missouri, had a population of 6,108 in the 1880s.
The article claimed that the coal miners, plunging into a mine depth of 360 feet, penetrated the cave, opening a beautiful buried city. Lava arches stretched across the roof of the cave, looming over the streets of the ancient city, which are regularly laid out and surrounded by stone walls, which are carved and dressed in a fairly good, though rough, style of masonry.
The workers, together with the Moberly City Recorder David Coates and the Moberly Marshal George Keating, inspected the site and found a 30-foot-100-foot hall in a cave filled with stone benches and hand tools. Further search revealed statues and images made from a composition very reminiscent of bronze, without glitter, the article says.
The researchers found a stone fountain in a wide courtyard, still pouring completely clear water into its pool. But it was something that lay next to the fountain, which interested people who are studying this site. According to the article, the lying next to the base (fountain) were parts of the human skeleton. The leg bones were measured, the hips four and a half feet, the legs four feet and three inches, showing that when the living figure was three times the size of an ordinary person and possessed remarkable muscular strength and speed.
His skull, the story told, was broken; Bronze tools, granite hammers, metal saws and flint knives were scattered all around the perimeter. They are not so polished and not as accurately made as those that are now finished by our best mechanics, but they demonstrate the skill and proof of a perfect civilization that is very beautiful, according to the article.
The researchers spent twelve hours in the buried city and surfaced only after the oil in their lamps burned low. The article did not end with the miracles of discovery. Further advanced search will be done in a day or two.
There are no advanced search records.
Dr. Tom Spencer, professor at the Department of History, Humanities, Philosophy and Political Science at Northwestern State University of Missouri, said that since newspapers were trying to forget her after printing history. According to him, many times I think that these stories were written entirely because of a rumor and little or none at all on the site. As the history grew, the details became more and more outrageous.
He equates it with a children’s game where the children sit in a circle, and one child whispers a story in someone else’s ear, and by the time the story completes the circle, it was completely different. If you remember, sometimes the ending story reminded little of the original story, he said. I guess one of the elements of this story is factual, like the strange formation of the shaft or the long thigh, and it began to get more and more adorned when it managed around the journalistic circle at the time.
So what happened to the fabulous buried city under Moberly, Mo? At that time, there were such stories from time to time, and they usually disappear silently, because someone is going to investigate, and there is nothing for that, Spencer said. To avoid embarrassment, newspapers just do not say anything about it.
Nevertheless, a resident of Moberly John W. wants to know for sure. John and several friends explored the article archived in The New York Times, John said. The article considers coal miners who are looking for a Crystal City with several extended functions, as well as bones of what can only be called a giant.
John and his group plan to investigate the lawsuit of the underground city. We found the mine. We hope that we will go on a journey and find an underground city if we can get access to the mine, “he said. We drove through, and the site exists. You can still see the remains of the old driveway across the field. It would seem that this mine has not been used since the news article.
Moberly calls himself the Magic City. I hope John and his team can see how magical this is.
