  • Mystery surrounds historic Georgia ruins (Public link fixed)

    By Walter Putnam
    Forf Mountain State Park, Georgia (AP)

    A Cherokee legend attributes the wall to a mysterious band of “moon-eyed people” led by a Welsh prince named Madoc who appeared in the area more than 300 years before Columbus sailed to America.
