The black ghost dog and the headless bull, both harbingers of doom, that terrorise the Chatata Valley; 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); 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); and 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), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Tennessee.
The treasure of Cumberland Heights, guarded by invisible and deadly hands; the phantom slaves sometimes seen on the verandah of The Hermitage near Nashville, once the home of "the people's president", Andrew Jackson; the ill-omened bleeding horse of the Great Smoky Mountains; the famous Bell Witch poltergeist haunting in the community of Adams; the phantom white stag of the Sequatchie Valley; and the ghosts of Opryland, including a woman in black mourning weeds and the shade of Hank Williams, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Tennessee.
The United States of America has been the most culturally influential country in the world for generations. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Minneapolis, New York, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Juneau, Fort Lauderdale, Atlantic City, Skagway, Albuquerque, St Louis, Phoenix, Chicago, Sacramento, Detroit, Miami, Fairbanks, Salt Lake City, Honolulu, Boston, Seattle, Corpus Christi, New Orleans, San Francisco, Savannah, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Dallas, Atlanta, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Houston, San Diego, Anchorage, Las Vegas, Sitka and Lake Tahoe are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Route 66, Yosemite National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Florida Keys, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, the Appalachians, the California coastline, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Niagara Falls, the Ozarks, Glacier Bay National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Adirondacks, Mount Rainier National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Everglades, Yellowstone National Park, the Disney resorts, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, rodeos, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Bryce Canyon and Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi.
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. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Good luck on your travels.
