Oxford Alabama Indian Mound

There's an ongoing argument in Oxford, Alabama (near Anniston). The city is so pleased that a new Sam's Wholesale is coming to town that it has given them permission to use a prehistoric Indian mound for foundation fill dirt.

In an "Anniston Star" report, Oxford Mayor Leon Smith said leveling the mound is no big deal because it was only used for sending smoke signals. How would he know?
