The White Witch's Balcony

Nice view. The only thing missing today is the gallows that was in the middle of the yard. along witih a whipping post and a bear trap. Annie Palmer ruled her slaves with cruelty and voodoo. The least rule infraction would lead to hanging from the gallows. Annie Palmer took great delight in watching. There was also a flogging post where 100 lashes were common. And a bear trap where she would sometimes have a slave's leg snapped into it with instructions to give him no food or water, leading to a slow, painful death. Given a choice, a slave would always choose hanging, instead. It's not hard to figure out why she was called the WHITE WITCH.
