Scary Stories, Legends, Monsters, Folklore, Ghosts and Myths in Georgia
Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; the spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; the phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; 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); a stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?); and the Natchez princess Nacoochee, who killed herself for love and who is said to be interred with her paramour in the eponymous Nacoochee Mound, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
A cave, near the source of the Hiwassee River, containing many human skulls whose former owners haunted a farmer, who had foolishly removed them, until he wisely put them back; 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 revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; 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 elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; the many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; and the strange phenomena in John W Woolfolk House (Colonial Apartments), sometimes called The House of a Thousand Cadavers, in Columbus (the house contains private dwellings so do not be a nuisance), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Albuquerque, Seattle, Minneapolis, Savannah, Miami, San Diego, Indianapolis, Honolulu, Salt Lake City, Skagway, Los Angeles, Boston, Anchorage, Kansas City, St Louis, Dallas, Phoenix, Fairbanks, New Orleans, Houston, Sitka, Lake Tahoe, Juneau, Corpus Christi, Fort Lauderdale, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Detroit, San Francisco, Sacramento, Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington DC are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Bryce Canyon, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Route 66, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, rodeos, the Appalachians, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Everglades, the Ozarks, Yosemite National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Florida Keys, the Disney resorts, the Adirondacks, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, the wild west town of Tombstone and the California coastline.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. From camelopard.com, a heartfelt Bon Voyage!
