A lot of you may know about the legend of Forsyth County, Ga, and what happened in 1912. But, did you know that the event that took place eventually buried a mainly Black inhabited city under what is now Lake Lanier?

Oscarville, Ga was once a thriving Black run city until a woman by the name of Mae Crow was supposedly raped by four teenage black men. This city is now buried under the waters of Lake Lanier. A man-made reservoir in the state of Georgia.
