Most of us know about the Pyrimids in Egypt and South American but not all of us know that right here in the Continental United States we have Mounds and other man made structures . In the North Eastern part of the United States we have man...y man made structures which are Calenders to mark the seasonal sun . Shining with the early morning light they mark the Solstices of the year .
