Lincoln Park Gully - Real Haunts in Albany NY
In the late summer of 1626 a party of Mahican warriors and Dutch soldiers left Fort Orange led by the outpost’s superintendent, Daniel Van Kriekenbeek. The men intended to attack the Mohawks, but were caught off guard when the Mohawks instead ambushed them in what is today Lincoln Park. Most of the small group of Dutch soldiers and an unknown number of Mahicans were killed in the battle.
One particularly ghastly account states that a Dutchman was burned alive and had his leg and arm removed, which the Mohawks took as trophies. Visitors to the gully say that the spirits of the slain still roam the park, even in broad daylight. Ghostly figures have been seen gliding through the area, and some people even report a feeling of being watched.
