August 25, 1804, was a stiflingly hot day when members of the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery visited Spirit Mound. They came to the site because they had heard that little people with big heads inhabited the mound. It was rumored that these little people, whom some called “little devils,” could kill people with their arrows at great distances. At the mound the expedition didn’t find any little people, but did find a “most butifull landscape.”
