Fort Golgotha

telluric feedlines: twice twelve festoons
'With no intent other than to gratify a malignant disposition, as one early historian put it, Thompson built a fort — Fort Golgotha, he called it, displaying the wit that often made him insufferable — in the center of the public burying ground. Gravestones were torn up and used to build ovens to bake bread for the troops. Historian Nathaniel Prime wrote in 1845 that he had talked with old men who were there at the time, and they had "seen the loaves of bread drawn out of these ovens, with the reversed inscriptions of the tombstones of their friends on the lower crusts."'
"Edward Leedskalnin was a 100 pound — 5 foot tall man — who wound up in Homestead, Florida - on a ten-acre tract of land just south of Miami, Florida. Somehow he managed to single-handedly lift and maneuver blocks of coral weighing up to 30 tons each and create not only a castle but other things. How Edward did his work — has never been discovered — though he labored for 30 years."
