The Ghost of the Pony Express

Go back in history to a time were Pony Express riders could still be seen galloping across prairie and mountain to deliver mail to families eager to hear from their loved ones so far away. This story, in 1860, is about a Pony Express rider named Samuel Davies, and his horse, General. Sam and General were inseparable, it's said that they where hardly ever apart.

So when one day Sam did a quick handoff with another Express rider and galloped off on General no one thought about the dangerous ride that lie ahead. They galloped toward Sacramento, California, as they often had before. One day there was an attack on Sam and General, somewhere in the heart of Utah Territory. It's not known whether the attacker was a settler or Indian, only Sam, General, and the killer himself know that, but whoever it was he shot Sam down, killing both him and his horse. Sam lies there to this day, somewhere between Sacramento and St. Joseph Missouri. His horse however came back – as a ghost, and to this day he hunts day and night for the person who killed his beloved rider. That person by now is dead, but General still hunts for revenge, this time on the descendants of the killer. And since no one but Sam, General, and the killer himself know the identity of the killer, you'd better watch out, for this ghost horse may be searching for you.
