In the low, rolling hills of southern Chatham County, south of Siler City in the woods near Harper's Crossroads In North Carolina is a odd place known as The Devil’s Tramping Ground.
In the 1930s, in the deep south, legend has it that Robert Johnson, the King of the Delta Blues and the very first rock star, sold his soul. A shadowy figure, hearing his plight instructed him to go, guitar in hand to the Dockery Plantation Crossroads at midnight on a moonless night. Following these instructions Johnson was met at the crossroads by the Devil in the form of a large black man, who tuned his guitar and played his own haunting music. When he returned the guitar to Robert, he found he had full mastery of the instrument – the Devil having staked a claim to his soul in exchange for this gift, a bargain that would be collected upon at a later time.
