Abbotts creek (NC)
It has been told since the end of the Civil War, about two Confederate soldiers that had stolen a shipment of Union Gold. As the story goes, they were being chased through what is now Davidson County, and realized that the gold was slowing them down too much and they were sure to be caught. When they got to Abbotts creek, they buried the gold in hopes that they could get away, planning to return later to retrieve it after they were safe. According to the legend, they were caught anyway, only they both died while being questioned without ever giving up the secret of where they had hidden the gold. Over the years, many have searched the banks of Abbotts creek but no one has ever been able to find the Gold bars that the soldiers buried. It could very well still be waiting there for the lucky soul that stumbles onto it's hiding place.

If they were caught & both died while being questioned without giving up the secret of where they hid the gold... where did the story come from their ghosts?
