Hay Field Near Fiddler's Hollow

This hay field is located near my home.  The area is known as Fiddler's Hollow.  During the Civil War the small town of Medora (now known as St. Aubert) was a Union army camp site.  A small skirmish took place there.  According to area legend as the fighting began a Union soldier was playing his fiddle. A Confederate bullet ended his life as he played.  Local folklore has it that during the night one can still hear the fiddler playing his last song.
