MFtS – The Devil’s Abode

The cemetery spread along the area known as Devils Abode” has the graves and tombs of Klu Klux Klan members that fought violently against freeing the black slaves and even tried to wipe out the black race. After their bodies were buried here it became known as the Devils Abode and no one else wants to be buried here. I consider it to be a “dead” cemetary. In fact, family members of the cemetery’s population refuse to come here to pay their respects to their family member. They say, they have no respect for the men that dealt out torture and killing like these men did. No one takes care of their plots or puts flowers on their graves. Seems not one single soul wants to be identified with them. Can’t say that I blame them. As for me, I am writing a novel titled, “Devils Abode.” It is about the men that are buried here and their terrible crimes.


Barbara Beacham hosts Monday Finish the Story Challenge where she provides us with a photo prompt, the first sentence to our stories, and approximately 150 words in which we are to use to build our stories. It’s fun and addicting! Everyone is invited to participate. If you are interested in more information, click here. To read the other wonderful stories click on the link below:

  1. And my hubby and I were just talking about the Klu Klux Klan at supper tonight cause of being in the news again. It is a horrible thing and I wish it would go away! Great story!

  2. Don’t know much klu klux klan but this story reminds me of a movie. 1989 movie Glory is about American civil war and the the bravery of black American soldiers .
    Nice story and I like the use of dead cemetary here!

  3. An interesting response to the prompt, PJ. Hopefully her book won’t encourage people to visit the cemetery or tempt them to glorify the people buried there. Nicely done. 🙂

I would love to read your thoughts...
