Cahokia Mounds


Never even heard of Cahokia and its earthen mounds(Proof US History classes need some revamping) This looks like some place pretty interesting to visit. Apparently it is one of 8 cultural UNESCO sites in the US, how cool.
I just read about Cahokia which was occupied until about 600 years ago while reading "Against the Grain." Check the book out and info on Cahokia.

Cheers!

  1. I've heard about places like these! There is one in Alabama, too called Moundville (yes, those Alabamians are original).
