In Pennsylvania’s Chester County, locals have long known that something terrible happened along an old stretch of railroad known as Duffy’s Cut. History records that 57 Irish immigrant railroad workers died there in an 1832 cholera epidemic while clearing a stretch. Some claim to have seen the men’s ghosts dance on their own mass grave.
