The fabric of sources for NY and the Indians

Secretary Yates of the State of New York did not only publish the Laws regarding the Erie Canal, but also teamed up with William Moulton to publish a History of the State of New York in 1824, which was supposed to stretch over five volumes, but apparently was not continued after the first volume.

This book is interesting because its opening chapters on antiquities tie the Indian monuments in upstate New York to the Mayans, as has been explored by Dan Vogel in the Indian Origins and the Book of Mormon, (Signature Books), 1986.

Dan Vogel in turn is cited by Susan Stansfield Wolverton, whose book Having Visions: The Book of Mormon Translated and Exposed in Plain English, 2004, is a sort of critical commentary to the BoM.
