More than 600,000 men died during the Civil War, but the conflict also displaced countless civilians. In this collection, noted authors Dan Asfar and Edrick Thay recount fascinating stories of soldiers, statesmen and star-crossed lovers, both ordinary and extraordinary, whose lingering spirits serve as a testament to America's most devastating war: * Eyewitnesses spot the ghosts of Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis and Edgar Allan Poe at Fort Monroe, one of the few Union forts in the Confederate South. * In New Orleans, the spirits of General Pierre Beauregard and his fallen soldiers continue to fight the tragic Battle of Shiloh. * An anti-slavery crusader haunts Harpers Ferry, where he staged a munitions raid and was hanged before the war broke out. * ''Old Green Eyes,'' the disembodied head of a fallen soldier, terrifies visitors to Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park in Georgia. * In the cemetery of a former Ohio war prison, a battalion of Confederate dead rise from their anonymous graves. * An entire chapter explores the many specters of Gettysburg, the war's most infamous battlefield. * For anyone interested in the paranormal, Ghost Stories of the Civil War will prove a chilling and unforgettable treat.
