Civil War Ghosts & Legends

( 2 )

Overview

The countless horrible deaths and bloody strife of the Civil War have always haunted America--as these eerie stories reveal, and sometimes literally.

Overview

The countless horrible deaths and bloody strife of the Civil War have always haunted America--as these eerie stories reveal, and sometimes literally. The turbulence of that era has left us with extraordinary tales that serve as a reminder of the heroism displayed and the torture endured by the soldiers of both sides. A man from Harper's Ferry, bearing a striking resemblance to John Brown, is often asked to pose for photographs; but his image never appears when they are developed. The ghost of a murdered captain appears before his colonel and reveals who did the killing. A reenactment of J. E. B. Stuart's famous ride becomes a frightening reality as one man witnesses his great grandfather's fall in battle a hundred years prior. These, and other legends, uniquely blend suspense, mystery, and history.

    Errieely real!!!.

    I have had this book in my possesion for about 2-3 weeks and just started reading it, since I am a big history buff, I couldn't beleive what I read. One story in paticular really scared the bajesus out of me. One called 'the night train passes' was about lincoln's funeral train. It was really weird. Thanks for the Scare!!!.
