First Circus Elephant, Greenbrier Ghost, Daredevil Hoaxster

In Somers, New York, is a 20-foot granite obelisk on top of which sits a statue of a most unlikely pioneer - an elephant. "Old Bet" first arrived in America in 1805 and went on to a storied career as the first circus elephant. And although ten years later, she met a tragic fate, her legacy lives on. In a quiet graveyard in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, is a historic marker to the "Greenbrier Ghost." After a beautiful young woman dies, her mother receives a paranormal message from her daughter's ghost from beyond the grave, purportedly informing her that it was her husband who killed her. On the island of Kauai is a statue to the great British explorer, Captain James Cook, who met his tragic demise on anidyllic Hawaiian beach at the hands of a group of natives who he thought were friendly.
