There are THREE Myths about Forsyth County that irritate me because they are untrue. I am going to try to put enough evidence online to show you why I think so.
1. All the Cherokees in Forsyth County were rounded up and
sent to the land "west of Arkansas" in 1838 on the "Trail of Tears".
2. Chief Sawnee is sealed up in a cave on Sawnee Mountain with his gold.
3. All the BLACKs in Forsyth County were forced to sell their land because of what happened in 1912.
What Happened in 1912

Mae Crow was assaulted on Sunday, September 08, 1912.She died Monday, September 23, 1912. Rob Edwards was indicted for the rape of Mae Crow. On Tuesday September 10,1912 Edwards was shot, drug from the Cumming, GA jail and hung up on the telephone pole at the intersection of Main Street and Tribble Gap Road (the northwest corner of the Square according to a participant).
