Georgia farmer brings home a very strange Halloween pumpkin that causes all sorts of trouble.
The State of Georgia is known for its geographical and cultural diversity. Georgia's landscapes range from the Appalachian Mountains to the north, through the Piedmont plateau, to the beaches and barrier islands of its coastline. Rural farmland, picturesque small towns and the major metropolis of Atlanta lie in-between. All told, Georgia is the largest state in terms of land area east of the Mississippi River.
One of the original Thirteen Colonies, Georgia has been home to Indigenous peoples, European settlers and enslaved/freed Africans. Not many states were the epicenter of both the Civil War and the 1960s civil rights movement like Georgia.
Georgia’s diversity has given birth to countless stories. The historic coastal city of Savannah, Georgia, considered the most haunted city in America, is the setting for many ghost stories like The Dinner Party. Up the coast is Ibo Landing, the haunted site of a slave mass suicide. In the mountains, Green Eyes haunts the massive Chickamauga Battlefield.
