The Indian Mounds are the oldest man made structure of thing in the US, and they are older than the egyptian pyramids.
One of LSU's first presidents was William T. Sherman the Union General who burned down Atlanta.
As a gift he gave LSU two Cannons from Fort Sumter, that were believed to be the first shots of the civil war. They now sit on South Stadium in front of the military science building.
