It was buried for a reason....even back then the stockade residents whined and complained about what happens in or near their neighborhood so they had it buried. They think they own the riverfront so there is no public dock there; they were able to create a "no-fly zone" for the Air National Guard because they claimed the noise was loosening their foundation (failing to mention they are under water every other year) and they will try to sabotage any and all plans to actually bring people to the city and dig it out of it's own financial ruins.....all to save their precious stockade way of living. How about we build another fence around it, then in a couple hundred years we can dig it up again and ogle the ancient crack pipes and beer bottles.....
