The death song of a Cherokee maiden and her white lover, that is still sometimes heard near Chattanooga, at Walden Ridge (Wallen's Ridge) above the Tennessee River (the pair leapt to their deaths because her father forbade their marriage); the Tennessee Troll seen in Campbell county (if you don't see a real one, you can buy a hand-crafted souvenir from A Troll in the Park, in Gatlinburg, Sevier county); the ill-omened bleeding horse of the Great Smoky Mountains; the black ghost dog and the headless bull, both harbingers of doom, that terrorise the Chatata Valley; and the ghosts of Opryland, including a woman in black mourning weeds and the shade of Hank Williams, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Tennessee.
The phantom slaves sometimes seen on the verandah of The Hermitage near Nashville, once the home of "the people's president", Andrew Jackson; the famous Bell Witch poltergeist haunting in the community of Adams; rumours that Elvis is alive and well, although somewhat older (even though his ghost has allegedly been seen in a number of places, including his Graceland mansion in Memphis); the phantom white stag of the Sequatchie Valley; tales of Casey Jones and his locomotive, the Cannonball Express (Jones was actually a real hero who died in a collision in Mississippi - his home is still preserved in Jackson); and the treasure of Cumberland Heights, guarded by invisible and deadly hands, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Tennessee.

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.
