During the war northern troops entered Salisbury, NC and torched it to the ground. Hundreds of women and children starved to death as the soldiers also stole all the food sources and torched the crop fields as well.
With very few people left alive and no homes left standing for miles around the few survivors had to wait for the winter snows to melt before they could bury their dead. When the ground was no longer frozen over three hundred women and children were buried in a field on the outskirts of where the city once stood.
The field where these poor souls were buried is known locally by some folks as the Jerusalem Plain. Legend has it that children can often be seen at night (and during the day) walking hand in hand through these fields which now contain the unmarked graves of the mothers and children.|
The legend goes that because the burials had to be done at night and in secrecy for fear that gangs of thieves would try to steal valuables from the corpses many of the children were buried separately from their mothers.
Therefore during certain times of the year their spirits can be seen huddled together wandering the fields looking for their moms. We were visiting the area which is still secluded three months ago.
My wife and I had pulled over, it was sunset and we sat atop an old rock wall about two feet high. I will never forget this as long as I live. In the fading sunset we saw two little boys walking towards us.
