Ghosts, Monsters, Folklore, Legends, Scary Stories and Myths in Georgia
The vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; 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 many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; 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 pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
The phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; 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; Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; the spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; the Natchez princess Nacoochee, who killed herself for love and who is said to be interred with her paramour in the eponymous Nacoochee Mound; 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); the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; and the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.

Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Detroit, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Savannah, Dallas, Philadelphia, Chicago, Fairbanks, Washington DC, Skagway, Atlanta, Houston, Juneau, New York, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Anchorage, San Diego, St Louis, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Fort Lauderdale, Albuquerque, Corpus Christi, Miami, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Boston, Sitka, Sacramento, Phoenix, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlantic City and Lake Tahoe. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The wild west town of Tombstone, Yellowstone National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Yosemite National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, rodeos, Mount Rainier National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Niagara Falls, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Florida Keys, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Route 66, the Ozarks, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Disney resorts, the Everglades, Mount Rushmore, the Adirondacks, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Appalachians, Glacier Bay National Park, the California coastline, the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
