I stumbled across a footnote for the Great Atlantis Search in an old Arizona Highways article (Circa 1940s)—“Ancient Manuscripts on American Stone” by William Coxon—one afternoon while looking for something to read in a waiting room in Houston, Texas.  
 
Coxon, a photographer and archaeologist who died in Arizona in 1963, traveled to Mexico in the late Thirties and stopped by the Mazatlan tourist information center to gather information for a presentation for the locals when he returned home. While there, he encountered Don Manuel, an archaeologist and Aztec who researched ancient history; his in particular. Finding out Coxon was from Arizona, he asked him to take some pictures of certain petroglyphs there when he got home and send them to him and, if he would come by his office the following day, they would talk about it. 

Coxon wrote he wasn’t sure what petroglyphs Don Manuel was talking about, and so borrowed some information at the hotel where he was staying. The next day he met with Manuel and told him he was sure there were no petroglyphs in Arizona. It was then Manuel relayed to him his Aztec legend: 

“. . . according to the legends of my ancestors, the Nahuatl tribes came to this continent from Atlantis, and crossed overland to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake. Later, they migrated from there to the Valley of the River Gila, and established their first capital. After living there several centuries, they migrated onto the Mexican Plateau. You will find their petroglyphs in Arizona.” 

When Coxon returned to his hometown, he made a talk to the Rotary about his trip, spoke of his encounter with Don Manuel, and asked that if anyone had seen petroglyphs of this nature to let him know after the meeting. To his surprise, several men approached and told him where he could find them.

Ask President Obama and the Congress why… 

The first question I want to ask the president and all the members of congress is: Why did you hate the way America was? 

The saying goes ‘love it or leave it’. 

Why are you still living here?  

Why did you tell us you wanted to serve and represent your fellow citizens, then turn your back on us and our country?  We did not plan or carry out the attacks on America on Sept. 11th 2001, but you have treated us like we did.   You’ve sent our valiant soldiers to the other side of the world to avenge 9/11 and stop another attack, but have stood silently by while there was an invasion of the U.S. at our southern border. 

Why have you failed to protect us from that? 

Why have you let the ‘terrorists win’ by destroying everything that was wonderful about America?  You’ve taken away our reason to fly our flag proudly and shamed our name around the world with your legalized brutality and torture.  More
