Tom walker and his wife hated each other. They lived in boston, massachusetts. Took place in 1727.
He makes a short cut through the forest. Then Tom is approached by the devil and the devil wanted to make a deal with Tom. The devil offers him money that is near him that would make Tom rich.
Tom goes home and thinks about the offer that the devil gave him. His wife tells him to take the offer but he refuses so she goes out and tries to find the devil and take the offer but she never returns.
Tom becomes very successful but begins to worry about his soul. He begins to start to regret that he didnt take the offer from the devil. Tom tries to change by reading the bible and going to church.
But him going to church doesnt help him repent the sin. So the devil comes for Tom walkers soul.
People elected a board over his estate.They couldnt find the money and some people say they can still see black horses and Tom Walker as a ghost.
