During the Revolutionary War, General Wayne rode his horse, Nag, through a major storm to warn American troops of an impending attack. Due to his bravery, the men were saved. This moment was so important to him, it has been repeated since his death.
His ghost has been seen rushing along the banks of the Hudson River on his horse. Witnesses say that sparks fly up from Nag's hooves when they meet the hard pavement. His haunting ground is between Storm King Mountain and Stony Point. More often than not, his sighting means a big storm is coming.
