TWAIN ONCE VISITED THE RUINS OF THE FORT
As the legend goes, some time ago back in the 1800’s two men were said to be shaving when a cannon was fired taking off one of the men’s heads and forcefully amputating the other’s hands. Residents in the area used to report seeing either the headless ghost or the handless ghost, or both together roaming the snake hill and fort grounds. The story gets even more interesting… Not too long ago while a dig was conducted close by, excavators located what appeared to be a burial ground. You guessed right it if you said they found many skeletons, two of which held
specific interest—one was missing its skull, while the other was missing its hands.
