Conclusion The Roswell Incident The people of the world have always had a mysterious belief that Earth wasn’t the only planet in the universe that supported life. This belief dates back to ancient times when heavenly and demonic stories were told of gods who strode

across the skies on their golden chariots. Tales as far fetched as Zeus who threw lightening bolts from his fingertips to stories as credible as the American Indian’s Cachinas, who supposedly taught them to farm and saved them from numerous disasters. The Egyptians, who built their mammoth pyramids with only the use of man power, used hieroglyphics. These same hieroglyphics have been unofficially documented as being similar to symbols found on unidentified aircraft wreckage found in several incidences over the past fifty years (Montgomery 225-32, 236-37). Are these stories all mere coincidence? Some researchers think not and have continued to unveil new evidence that is believably true. Recently, new facts have been brought up on the most documented UFO (unidentified flying

object) sighting of all time: the Roswell Incident. The Roswell Incident is a UFO crash that occurred at 11:30 p.m. on July 4th, 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico (Randal 10). Mac Brazel, a local New Mexico rancher, discovered a considerable amount of unusual debris while riding out on horseback early in the morning to check his sheep after a night of intense thunderstorms. He reported to Sheriff George Wilcox after driving into Roswell, that the aircraft had created a shallow gouge several hundred feet long and was scattered over a large area. Sheriff Wilcox then notified authorities at the Roswell Army Air Field and with the assistance of his deputies, proceeded to investigate the matter. Shortly after the 509th Bomb Group arrived from their station 35 miles away (Walker 38), they

closed off the area for a number of days and retrieved the wreckage. The debris was initially taken to Roswell Army Air Field and eventually flown to Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio (Jeffrey). Before the military could intervene, the event had already been witnessed by more than one-hundred people. Local police, fire squad, and curious members of the Roswell community make up these people. A lot of them were part of the initial recovery team and are now telling their stories that have been bottled up for nearly a half of a century (Randal 11). According to one unnamed witness of the Roswell recovery team, The crash site was littered with pieces of the aircraft. Something about the size of a fighter plane had crashed, the metal was unlike anything I’d ever seen before. I picked up

a piece the size of a car fender with one hand, it couldn’t have weighed more than a quarter of a pound and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t even get it to bend (Randal 11). This statement describes the type of material that was found at the site and has been described in this manner by numerous witnesses. The next statement was made by Curry Holden, an archeologist who was one of the first to arrive on the scene, “I saw a crashed airplane without wings and with a fat fuselage. There were three bodies. Two were outside the craft and the other one was still inside, visible through a gash in the fuselage” (Walker 38). Other bits of information have also been documented from locals arriving initially at the scene. First, there is the local undertaker, Glenn Dennis, who
