College Campus Waterfall - Toccoa Falls

Toccoa Falls is a waterfall with a vertical drop of 186 feet (57 m) on the campus of Toccoa Falls College in Stephens County, Georgia. Toccoa comes from the Cherokee word "Tagwâ′hĭ", meaning "Catawba place" or "beautiful". The land around Toccoa Falls was traded to White settlers in 1783, and written accounts of the falls began to appear in publications in the nineteenth century. White folk tales about Toccoa Falls are recounted in the writings of Elizabeth F. Ellet[3] and Charles Montgomery Skinner.[4] Both Ellet and Skinner's stories portray tension between the White settlers and the Native Americans of the area, describing the White settlers as victims of the Native Americans' violence. The stories, which Ellet and Skinner both independently suggest are apocryphal, involve a theme of White women tricking groups of men to walk off of Toccoa Falls, although the men are Native American in Skinner's story whereas in Ellet's, the White woman has been forced by Native Americans to trick her fellow White settlers. In the 1890s, ethnographer James Mooney compiled myths of the Cherokee while living with them for several years. Mooney recounts a story about Toccoa Falls told to him by his half-Cherokee assistant in which, when the White newcomers saw Toccoa Falls for the first time, they saw a Cherokee woman walking underneath the water who then suddenly appeared on top of the falls after a moment. Mooney's assistant says that the woman in the story "must have been one of the Nûñnë'hï," a race of spirit people in Cherokee mythology. During the early morning hours of November 6, 1977, after five days of almost continual rain, the dam that impounded the waters of Kelly Barnes Lake (located above the Toccoa Falls College campus) burst, and 176 million gallons of water surged through the campus below in the space of a few minutes. Most of the college personnel who lived in the path of the flood were asleep at the time, and 39 of them were swept to their deaths in the raging waters of Toccoa Creek. The dam was not rebuilt Please Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/shabbytrick?sub_confirmation=1 _____________________ _____________________ You can also find me: Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/shabbytrick Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/shabbytrick Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/shabbytrick Webpage: http://www.shabbytrick.com Snapchat: shabbytrick1975

The Grave of First lady of United States Wilson

Ellen Axson Wilson, born Ellen Louise Axson on May 15, 1860, in Savannah, Georgia, was the first wife of President Woodrow Wilson and the First Lady of the United States from 1913 until her untimely death in 1914. Here is a short biography and some keywords: Ellen Axson Wilson was an accomplished artist and a supporter of various social causes. She married Woodrow Wilson in 1885, and together they had three daughters. As First Lady, Ellen focused on promoting the arts and culture, hosting events at the White House to showcase American talent. Ellen Wilson's interests extended beyond the traditional role of First Lady. She was a strong advocate for social justice and women's rights, contributing to the suffrage movement. Her dedication to these causes left a lasting impact on the role of First Ladies in advocating for social issues. Tragically, Ellen Wilson's time as First Lady was cut short when she succumbed to Bright's disease on August 6, 1914. Despite her brief tenure, she is remembered for her contributions to the arts, her advocacy for social causes, and her influence on the evolving role of First Ladies in American society.
