The spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; the revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; the statue of little Gracie Watson in Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, which is said to weep blood if anyone steals the presents which are sometimes left on her grave; the phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; the pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it; the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; the female spectre of the town square, Savannah, who sometimes follows people around (she is seeking her baby who was born just before the woman was hanged for murder); and Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
