7.9 – ALIENS & THE CIVIL WAR (4.10.15)


Washington, DC. December 2, 1863. It has been exactly five months since the Battle of Gettysburg, and the tides of the Civil War are beginning to turn in the Union’s favor. At the start of the war, construction of the giant dome that would sit atop the Capitol Building had been halted, but President Lincoln convinced Congress to provide the funding to finish it, saying the dome would act as a sign that the Union would go on. Upon its completion, a statue was placed on top of it, with the final section raised to a salute of 35 guns answered by the guns of the 12 forts around Washington. Weighing nearly 15,000 pounds and standing 19 and a half feet tall, this bronze statue features a woman with a Native American-style fringed blanket thrown over her left shoulder, and an elaborate headdress made of eagle feathers and ringed with stars. It is called the Statue of Freedom, and according to Ancient Astronaut Theorists, it may represent an extraterrestrial being.

“The symbolism they chose is completely and totally cosmic a goddess cloaked in stars, suggesting she’s a celestial or a Star Being.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“And when you look at it, and even have the natives explain it to you, they say things like: ‘Oh, yes, these are the Star People coming from the sky.’”

   – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it really possible that there is a depiction of an extraterrestrial standing atop the Capitol Dome? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and suggest the evidence can be found by looking back to the Founding Fathers. In the 1730s to the 1760s, Benjamin Franklin published a series of pamphlets he called The Indian Treaties. One of the best-selling of these pamphlets chronicled the Iroquois creation story of the Sky Woman.

“Native Americans believed that the Sky Woman came to Earth when there was nothing here but water and animals and that she was the mother of the very first human beings. Native Americans had beliefs in people who lived in space. Many of the Founding Fathers believed in the plurality of worlds. And these ideas, these stories would have matched up very well with their concepts about plurality of worlds and extraterrestrials from space.”

Chris Pittman (UFO Investigator / Historian)

“You have to wonder if there wasn’t some kind of extraterrestrial influence here. And did they have some connection to these star people? Was this basically a message for aliens?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Did Abraham Lincoln and the Union leaders erect the Statue of Freedom as a tribute to star beings that they believed might be watching over the country? Were they reinstating a symbol of our cosmic heritage during the time of our greatest crisis? And if extraterrestrials really did have a vested interest in the outcome of the Civil War, are they still watching over the Great American Experiment today?

“It really seems that extraterrestrials have been monitoring the United States since its very inception. We’ve seen this, really, from the American Civil War and right at the very beginning of the American Revolution. And I think that this is still going on today. The nurturing of the United States as an inclusive, spiritual, and technically advanced country is very important to the extraterrestrials and ultimately for the entire Planet Earth.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“It’s possible that extraterrestrials have been visiting America since its foundation and have been, in fact, steering the outcome this whole time. And why might they want to do that?  You would want to see society moving in a direction of greater freedom, greater openness, greater acceptance, so that, in time, it allows them to have a much more warm welcome than they otherwise would have. There is every reason to believe that extraterrestrials are still watching over us and are having a key impact in the events that unfold on Earth today.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Is it possible that extraterrestrials really were present here on Earth during the Civil War? If so, were they simply passive observers, waiting to see if our fragile democracy could survive this test? Or did they take an active role in order to preserve the Union? Perhaps the Great American Experiment is part of a larger cosmic agenda, and once we fully realize the ideals put forth by men like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, we will finally come face-to-face with our alien ancestors.
