This is an interesting article that had its origin as ghost story to the Watson brothers by their Grandfather, but turned out to be more than just a
tale to give his grandchildren the creeps. The seemingly harmless ghost story turned out to be more than a chillingly yarn, but a potential mass
murder that may have taken place near Philadelphia almost 200 years ago?
The brothers set out to the location of where the ghost story took place and partook in some amateur archaeology, and uncovered some telling
circumstantial evidence. After heightening the interest of university professionals, it seems the Irish immigrants may have met their fates not by a
viral epidemic but by the hands of man?
It seems perhaps some of the concerns felt by the alleged assailants may have been similar to our own in this day and age? Immigrants where coming
over in droves as they are now and people worry about their livelihoods, competition, disease, and other perceived changes to their way of life.
In the past mistrust and ignorance has led to violence and even murder. It may have been the case with these Irish immigrants, and the scenario could
very well happen again if the hot topic issue of Illegal Immigration takes a turn for the worse? Lets hope people remain civil and humane as
politicians, the MSM, and others continue their sinister ways of fanning the flames of xenophobia and hatred. Sometimes by looking at events from the
past, it is mirror of ourselves in the present.
