Newton - The Hanging Tree

During the Civil War one of the soldiers left the war and went to visit his family. He was later found by members of the community and hanged for desertion. He was a tall man so they had to dig out a hole so his feet would not touch the ground. To this day only to find it completely cleaned out upon their return.
