The sinkhole earned its reputation during the American Civil War, when Confederate gangs used the hole as a dumping ground for those with Unionist sympathies. The bones of at least 17 people have been found piled at the bottom of the sinkhole.One particularly creepy feature of the hole is an oak tree growing beside it, with a strong limb stretched directly…
