Lake Lanier was built in 1956 by the US Army Corps and is named after the confederate army veteran Sidney Lanier. But the lake is hiding something, literally.
Under it lies the city of Oscarville, Georgia, which was a thriving black community that got run out by white supremacists and then flooded by the infamous lake due to two black men who allegedly raped and killed a white woman in a town over.
Since then there have been several drownings, disappearances, boating accidents and other unfortunate events that lead to people claiming the lake being haunted. There have also been survivors from drowning, who claim that it felt like someone was pulling them under water.
The US Army Corps has admitted that they could not recover each and everybody that was buried underground at graveyards, who are now also drowned by the lake. So are the spirits of the people of Oscarville taking revenge on those that are now paddling and swimming in the lake? Or is someone else getting revenge for them?
