Myths, Ghosts, Monsters, Legends, Folklore and Scary Stories in Georgia
A stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?); 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; 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 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 revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; and 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, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
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 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); the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; 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 pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it; and the many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. 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 Los Angeles, San Diego, Savannah, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, Anchorage, Detroit, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Santa Fe, Atlantic City, Miami, Fairbanks, Juneau, Fort Lauderdale, Lake Tahoe, Boston, Houston, Minneapolis, Sacramento, Kansas City, New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Corpus Christi, St Louis, Phoenix, Honolulu, Chicago, Albuquerque, Seattle, Skagway, Washington DC, Sitka and New Orleans. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Ozarks, rodeos, Mount Rushmore, Mount Rainier National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Adirondacks, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Everglades, the Appalachians, the Florida Keys, the Okefenokee Swamp, Yosemite National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Disney resorts, the California coastline, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Niagara Falls, Route 66, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier Bay National Park and the Grand Canyon are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
