Since the first shots of the Civil War were fired, people continue to be haunted by those ghosts of our forefathers. The history of that turbulent era has left us with extraordinary tales that serve as a reminder of both the torture our ancestors endured and the heroism they displayed. In this book, Nancy Roberts records these eerie legends. A man from Harpers Ferry, bearing a striking resemblance to John Brown, is often asked to pose for photos yet his image does not appear when they are developed. The ghost of a murdered captain appears before his colonel and reveals the man responsible for his death. 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.
