NOT AGAIN: Activists thought they were victorious and done protecting Conestoga Indian Town in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, when they stopped a natural gas pipeline from being built through it. But now, a local farmer has taken a bulldozer to a hill on his property, which some historians and Native activists believe is a Native American burial mound.
