William B. Bankhead National Forest is one of four national forests in Alabama, spanning over 181,000 acres. During the Civil War, a woman named Jenny who lived in the area lost her husband and eldest son when the Home Guard murdered them. Supposedly they were killed because they fed war deserters, or because the son refused to join the war effort, but in either case Jenny and her remaining sons vowed to hunt down and kill every member of the squad responsible for murdering their family members. They succeeded in tracking down seven of the eight men involved in the incident, but that has evidently left Jenny with some unfinished business. Her ghost still haunts the woods, and she will appear to hikers as they approach her property, still angry over her loss and warning all visitors to leave. Email Haunt
