Alan has appeared in three America Unearthed episodes so far and each time has been more interesting and fun. We were thrilled to feature Alan’s work in his book, Washington D.C.: City of the Goddess. I truly believe his megalithic yard research reveals what might be the city’s biggest secret of all.
Although this secret clearly resided within a very tight circle of Freemasons, what still puzzles me was how they were able to hide it for so long? Whoever the individuals were, and are, their identities will likely continue to be a tightly kept secret. However, there is one individual Alan and I feel we can put a face to that was part of that inner circle; Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
There were two facts that indicated Roosevelt's knowledge of the megalithic system and its importance in Washington D.C.:
- The final location of the Pentagon that we discussed in the show.
- The placement of his monument within the city after his death at his request.
I’m not talking about the amazing series of massive granite and bronze that make up the monument to his four terms as president dedicated in 1997 by President Bill Clinton. Roosevelt insisted on a modest piece of limestone placed in a specific spot along Pennsylvania Avenue.
During filming, we sought out this stone during breaks in filming to see if corresponded to the megalithic system within the city. Predictably it did. This makes two specific locations that conform to the megalithic system whose locations were personally selected by the President.
Letter of the week:Dear Scott Wolter,
The America Unearthed Washington DC episode was enlightening. I'm aware of Dan Brown's book on mysteries here, but I've never heard anyone mention an ancient system of measurement used to design the nation's capital. Alan Butler seems like a good guy to have a pint with.
Is this at all related to V. Garth Norman's work on a consistent system of measurement between Egypt and Central America? A video on his work here here - http://youtu.be/TDqVKeC_OFU
