Singing River

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Singing River

Legend states that the Pascagoula River was the site of a mass suicide by the Pascagoula Indian tribe. Facing enslavement and slaughter from a pending battle against a superior force, they chose suicide en masse rather than facing defeat. As the marched into the water, they sang a death song and that is the music that the river continues to repeat to this day.

    1. WE HAD A SUMMER CAMP ON THE PASCAGOULA RIVER WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 1970’S. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE RIVER DOES SING. IF YOU LISITEN CLOSLY AND LOOK LATE IN THE AFTERNOON YOU CAN SEE A FAINT MISTY SHADOW OF PEOPLE WALKING HAND IN HAND INTO THE RIVER

    2. I walked from New Orleans to Panama city Florida. I came across this section on my way through the coast. Google maps took me through the woods one night and I was surrounded by shadowy figurers. 10-15 maybe I just kept my head down, hoody up and kept walking. I didn’t want to look at em directly. I know what I saw! I would be the first to tell you, I don’t believe in ghosts, ghouls, goblins or anything that goes bump in the night. I can also tell you that I know what trees, bushes and shrubs look like. I also know what a person 5″ 7 , 6ft, 4″ 5 looks like too!!! They were walking with me, next to me, on me!!!!!!!!! I got the fk outta there and I will never go back into the woods again
