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); 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); the famous Bell Witch poltergeist haunting in the community of Adams; 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); 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 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 treasure of Cumberland Heights, guarded by invisible and deadly hands; the black ghost dog and the headless bull, both harbingers of doom, that terrorise the Chatata Valley; the phantom white stag of the Sequatchie Valley; and the phantom slaves sometimes seen on the verandah of The Hermitage near Nashville, once the home of "the people's president", Andrew Jackson, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Tennessee.
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 Seattle, Houston, Fort Lauderdale, Sacramento, New Orleans, Atlantic City, Savannah, Juneau, Chicago, Corpus Christi, Skagway, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Anchorage, Honolulu, San Francisco, Kansas City, Miami, Lake Tahoe, Albuquerque, St Louis, Philadelphia, San Diego, Indianapolis, Santa Fe, Minneapolis, Fairbanks, Dallas, Phoenix, Boston, New York, Detroit, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Washington DC and Sitka. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Disney resorts, rodeos, Route 66, the Ozarks, Glacier Bay National Park, the Florida Keys, Yellowstone National Park, Niagara Falls, the Appalachians, the California coastline, Mount Rainier National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Adirondacks, the Everglades, Bryce Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount Rushmore and the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
