The History of Rattle and Snap Dates
The history of Rattle and Snap dates back to just after the Revolutionary War. Back then, the U.S. Government did not have the money to pay its soldiers, so they issued land grants. One of those soldiers was Lt. Colonel William Polk. William was very good friends with the Governor of North Carolina, the governor was his brother-in-law.
One day, William and the governor got involved in a gambling game. The governor was losing very badly, and in order to clear his debts, he threw one of those land grants into the pot. The game they were playing was called beans, similar to dice or craps of today. They would take large numbered beans, rattle them in their hands, and throw them to the ground with a snap of their fingers. With that one snap, William Polk won 5,648 acres of prime Maury County.
Now William had no use for the land. He had already built his home up in Spring Hill. That home was called Will's Grove. It later became Hayne's Haven and today we know it as the Saturn Corporation.
