The Summerville Plantation was full of joy and happiness until one day when little Billy Edwards was found dead in the attic. Everyone that resides in the Plantation was questioned about poor little Billy Edwards' death, but no one seemed too eager to talk about his death.
The groundskeeper claimed there was a ghost in the attic that killed Billy Edwards with an axe.
Billy's father, Jim, questioned Sam Tucker the grounds keeper about his son's death. Sam insisted a ghost killed his son.
Jim replied, "Sam, what do you mean a ghost killed my son?"
"If you're so hell bent on knowing the truth. I'll tell you how it all began. This story dates as far back as the Civil War. Ben Coates was a dashing Yankee General who was in love with one of the slave women named Lucy at the Summerville Plantation. They knew their love was forbidden and if anyone found out they would both be shot. Well guess what they both were in the attic making passionate love when the owner Jack Bullard of the plantation came in on them and in a jealous rage killed them both with two shots to the head. Jack was in love with his slave Lucy and when he seen the two together he lost control. Then a panic-stricken Jack knew he was dead if the Yankee soldiers found their heneral dead in his attic. So Jack took an axe and gave his slave Lucy and the Yankee heneral forty whacks then dismembered their bodies with the axe. The bodies were placed underneath the floor boards of the attic. Never to be seen or heard from again. So it seemed. These two love birds aren't the only ghosts haunting this plantation."
