As years went the legend grew that at midnight her eyes would glow red. If you were were caught gazing into those eyes you could be blinded! Another outrageous claim being pregnant women passing before her shadow would suffer miscarriages.
Over the years Aggie became part of college fraternity initiations, with stories of a student being found dead one morning of fright. Curiosity seekers continued to visit Aggie no matter the consequences and eventually the family donated her to the Smithsonian Institution.
Aggie was then moved and forgotten for some time until a writer named Shara Terjung wrote a story about the statue. Shara became fascinated with the legend of Aggie and was determined to discover her location. After contacting the Smithsonian she received a call before Halloween stating that Aggie was housed in a dusty storeroom at the National Museum of American Art.
Presently Black Aggie sits in the courtyard of the Dolly Madison house, Washington D.C. Next time you are in the area make sure to pay homage to this legend.
