The Royal Mile and New Town

by Rick Shrader

I still have a great interest in the United Kingdom, especially the Baptist history of England and Scotland.  Edinburgh may have more bizarre and creepy stories of any older or ancient city—like the story of Margaret Dickson who was hanged for illicit behavior, only when they heard tapping on her casket and opened it, she was still alive—and lived for another 40 years (not being liable for the crime for which she already suffered a punishment) being called “Half Hangit Maggie Dickson.”
