The Great Smithsonian Cover-Up: 18 Giant Skeletons Discovered in Wisconsin


Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912.

The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit College and it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture.

But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912 did not fit very neatly into anyone’s concept of a textbook standard. They were enormous. These were not average human beings. 

Strange Skulls 

First reported in the 4 May 1912 issue of the New York Times the 18 skeletons found by the Peterson brothers on Lake Lawn Farm in southwest Wisconsin exhibited several strange and freakish features.


Their heights ranged between 7.6ft and 10 feet and their skulls…

“presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America to-day.” 

They tend to have a double row of teeth, 6 fingers, 6 toes and like humans came in differant races. The teeth in the front of the jaw are regular molars. Heads usually found are elongated believed due to longer than normal life span.

One must wonder how much can they lift if twice the size of a average human today? Are these the Giants the Bible & many other civilizations have in their history and painted on their walls?

The Bible in Genisis 6:4

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old men of renown.” 

Now this is faulty logic to any scientist out there because I am using religous/cultural history to fill a hole in science.

Over 200 Giant digs have been found in recent years. Giant skeleton finds have not made the local/national news since the 1950’s for the most part. It seems in most peoples opinion do to the fear that people would question evolution . If anything a de-evolution.

In 2002, National Geographic reported a dozen Cyclops skeletons found in Greece that stood 12-15 1/2 Ft tall. That is 3 humans tall. One eye socket. Giants in history are typically cannibalistic in nature.

The reason why I am bringing up giants will all tie into politics, and word happenings. Look at a basketball hoop and add 5 feet. That tall. Greek Mythology talks about war with cyclops learning they had to bring down by taking out their legs rendering them slow and helpless.

American Giants (Red Hair Giants) where found with egyptian writing on their tombs have been found in multiple locations.


Mystery of The Wisconsin Giants

Was this some sort of prank, a hoax played by local farm boys or a demented taxidermist for fun and the attention of the press? The answer is no.

The Lake Delavan find of May 1912 was only one of dozens and dozens of similar finds that were reported in local newspapers from 1851 forward to the present day. It was not even the first set of giant skeletons found in Wisconsin.

On 10 August 1891, the New York Times reported that scientists from the Smithsonian Institution had discovered several large “pyramidal monuments” on Lake Mills, near Madison, Wisconsin.

“Madison was in ancient days the centre of a teeming population numbering not less than 200,000,” the Times said.

The excavators found an elaborate system of defensive works which they named Fort Aztalan.

“The celebrated mounds of Ohio and Indiana can bear no comparison, either in size, design or the skill displayed in their construction with these gigantic and mysterious monuments of earth — erected we know not by whom, and for what purpose we can only conjecture,” said the Times.

On 20 December 1897, the Times followed up with a report on three large burial mounds that had been discovered in Maple Creek, Wisconsin. One had recently been opened.

“In it was found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size. The bones measured from head to foot over nine feet and were in a fair state of preservation. The skull was as large as a half bushel measure. Some finely tempered rods of copper and other relics were lying near the bones.”


Giant skulls and skeletons of a race of “Goliaths” have been found on a very regular basis throughout the Midwestern states for more than 100 years. Giants have been found in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and New York, and their burial sites are similar to the well-known mounds of the Mound Builder people.

The spectrum of Mound builder history spans a period of more than 5,000 years (from 3400 BCE to the 16th CE), a period greater than the history of Ancient Egypt and all of its dynasties.

There is a “prevailing scholarly consensus” that we have an adequate historical understanding of the peoples who lived in North America during this period. However, the long record of anomalous finds like those at Lake Delavan suggests otherwise.

The Great Smithsonian Cover-Up

Has there been a giant cover-up? Why aren’t there public displays of gigantic Native American skeletons at natural history museums?

The skeletons of some Mound Builders are certainly on display. There is a wonderful exhibit, for example, at the Aztalan State Park where one may see the skeleton of a “Princess of Aztalan” in the museum.

But the skeletons placed on display are normal-sized, and according to some sources, the skeletons of giants have been covered up.

Specifically, the Smithsonian Institution has been accused of making a deliberate effort to hide the “telling of the bones” and to keep the giant skeletons locked away.

In the words of Vine Deloria, a Native American author and professor of law:

“Modern day archaeology and anthropology have nearly sealed the door on our imaginations, broadly interpreting the North American past as devoid of anything unusual in the way of great cultures characterized by a people of unusual demeanor.

“The great interloper of ancient burial grounds, the nineteenth century Smithsonian Institution, created a one-way portal, through which uncounted bones have been spirited.

“This door and the contents of its vault are virtually sealed off to anyone, but government officials. Among these bones may lay answers not even sought by these officials concerning the deep past.”

Two Giant Skeletons Near Potosi, WI

The January 13th, 1870 edition of the Wisconsin Decatur Republican reported that two giant, well-preserved skeletons of an unknown race were discovered near Potosi, WI by workers digging the foundation of a saw mill near the bank of the Mississippi river.

One skeleton measured seven-and-a-half feet, the other eight feet. The skulls of each had prominent cheek bones and double rows of teeth. A large collection of arrowheads and “strange toys” were found buried with the remains.

Giant Skeleton Discovered in Maple Creek, WI

On December 20th, 1897 the New York Times reported that three large burial mounds had been discovered near Maple Creek, WI. Upon excavation, a skeleton measuring over nine feet from head to toe was discovered with finely tempered copper rods and other relics.

Giant Skeleton in West Bend, WI

A giant skeleton was unearthed outside of West Bend near Lizard Mound County Park and assembled by local farmers to a height of eight feet. More about this can be found in Washington County Paranormal: A Wisconsin Legend Trip by local author and investigator J. Nathan Couch.

While a normal-sized skeleton of a supposed mound builder (the “Princess of Aztalan”) is on display at the site of several large pyramidal monuments near Madison called Aztalan State Park, the goliath remains of Wisconsin’s giants have vanished along with the hundreds of others discovered throughout the midwest.

Many have accused the Smithsonian Institution of covering up these discoveries, locking the giant skeletons away and depriving the public of their findings.

      There are many artifacts of giants among private collections all over the world. Why would you believe the lame stream media? Nat geo has championed the idea of macro-evolution and to this day touts Darwinism as THE explanation for everything that lives.

      If giants existed, it would not only fly in the face of the neo-Darwinism but would completely shatter the theory into oblivion. It’s all part of their plan of which the biggest part is yet to be revealed.

      In a nutshell, if life springs from nothing and evolves upward (breaking the 2nd law of Thermodynamics) and all that is necessary are the right conditions and huge amounts of time; given the vastness of space and the number of stars and galaxies and solar systems “out there” life MUST have occurred simply by the odds of such a thing happening. If that is the case, the universe must be TEEMING with intelligent life, in fact, much more intelligent and abundant than ourselves.

      If such intelligent life exists, then it only stands to reason that they have been “visiting” us for quite some time. Ufology has been woven into the fabric of our psyche over the last 75 years by TV and movies and the media and TPTB are simply waiting for the technology to advance (it’s probably already here) to present the world to the “Pleadians” or the “Galaxy Star Command” which people have been seeing – even by whom many have been abducted since the 1950′s. Secret: They are not from another planet, they are from another dimension and they are EVIL. They are the spirits of the Nephilim. Look it up.

      When TPTB use their hi-tech ionospheric projectors to show holograms of these UFO’s and their secrets to the world and televise it as the first alien contact, it will probably be shortly after Jesus Christ takes all who believe in Him in the Rapture of the Church in which millions of people will have simply disappeared.

      After loved ones and friends vanish before people’s eyes, a huge explanation will be necessary. THIS IS THE STRONG DELUSION talked about in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 but there will be people still here that will know that the event that their “religious nut” friends and co workers actually did happen after all and they will become believers in Jesus Christ themselves ultimately going underground with their bibles after the antichrist makes all religions illegal but ONE.

      The believers in the day of the Tribulation or the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, will be many and will eventually be discovered because they won’t take the “mark of the beast”: a microchip implant in their right hand or forehead allowing them to buy and sell but sealing their fate for eternity in the Lake of Fire. When they refuse the mark, they will be decapitated by the antichrist but will have a special place in heaven with The Lord.

      It’s all coming together in this day and age and it’s all true. It’s happening just as the bible said it would and the bible speaks of many things that are yet to happen in which the world will be pretty much destroyed after God sends His wrath on an evil and unbelieving world in which most scoff at God and have relegated Him to the land of make believe with the Easter bunny and Santa Clause and the giant in Jack and the beanstalk (ironic, eh? giants started this story and they will now end it)

      Check these things out for yourselves. Don’t take my word for it. But if you don’t, be ready for the world to be turned upside down and for it’s inhabitants to be few and scattered, burned by the sun and radiation, in a world that not one single person reading this could imagine in their mind’s eye for it will be a day so terrible and horrifying, people will think they are in Hell BUT they have yet to see how bad Hell is…they will long to come back to a ruined world full of radiation and strange evil creatures that fly like locusts and sting like scorpions but they will be in a worse place FOREVER. Don’t’ want to go? Then SEEK the Knowledge of God.

      How? Get yourself a King James Bible (the only version in this age that is preserved by God and is FREE without any copyright) and begin to read about Jesus Christ in the Gospel of John. Learn about salvation as taught by our Lord Himself in chapter three. Ask God for guidance while you read because the word of God is spiritually discerned and to understand it you must have assistance from God at first, then His Spirit will move into your heart and you will be able to TRULY understand.

      After you learn about Jesus, you must choose. Most don’t realize that they have never made a choice for or against Jesus Christ. If you haven’t chosen or opt to choose later, you have made your choice. Once you die, if your spirit is still dead, you will have nowhere to go except to the Lake of Fire for eternity.

      The choice you make is simple. You either BELIEVE or you don’t. If you don’t believe, even after you have looked at the proof and tried to find Him, you are lost and headed to an eternity indescribable in torment forever and ever.

      If you BELIEVE, you will REPENT. If you repent and ask for forgiveness for your sins, you are saved. That is the order in which it goes. Believe unto repentance. This modern “alter call” where people are cajoled into saying “the sinners prayer” walking away knowing nothing more about Jesus Christ or God, feeling nothing different, going back to their same sinful ways and thinking they are saved is the most dangerous practice going on in the modern Laodicean churches. They’re turning out lost people who think they are saved! They go on sinning and believing that they are saved yet they haven’t BELIEVED on Jesus Christ unto repentance!
