    5 Stars for me I m ready, let s go So many cool HAUNTED places to visit.

    620,000 souls died in the American Civil War making it the deadliest of wars It s no wonder there are so many ghosts about.

    Rich Newman takes the reader on an informative and historically guided tour across the United States visiting than 160 sites with paranormal activity..and what a wonderfully diversified mix

    We visit many well known battlefields, forts, cemeteries and parks.as well as notable people of the time then move on to antebellum homes and buildings used as hospitals and prison camps where disease and malnutrition plus lack of medicine and medical expertise at the time exacerbated the death toll.

    Each occurence is complimented with their own HAUNTED story.some dark one ghost you don t EVER want to see .some sad, and many similar in their other worldly activities.there are even some great old photographs.

    GHOSTS OF THE CIVIL WAR is written in an easy to read style providing great tidbits on tours and ghost hunts with a helpful ...

    Pack up the car with the ghost hunting equipment baby we are headed on a road trip I absolutely loved this book, it was so comprehensive This book gave clear and understandable information I thought it would just give a brief description of a few places, but not the case This book was so thorough , it gave a thorough but yet understandable description of many of the going ons with the civil war For someone such as myself that is excited to read Civil War history and loves reading true paranormal this is the perfect marriage of the two There are many haunts locally including Gettysburg,PA so I a...

    Kind of sad but very interesting part of history concerning the Civil War, not hard to believe with all the tragedy and senseless deaths that these famous sites would indeed be haunted Great to dive into with Halloween around the corner.Thanks to author Rich Newman via Netgalley for this ver...

    Book received from NetGalley.I loved this book of real ghost stories that take place in various places that are linked to the American Civil War The book is divided in sections that focus on the same type of area, battlefields, forts, antebellum places etc While there were many stories I had already heard, there were j...

    Warning if you think that this book is going to provide stories of Civil War history and or ghost stories about the haunted spots at Civil War battlefields, forts, etc., you will be disappointed in this book If you believe this blurb from the description Discover the rich history of these Civil War locations and why so many souls linger long after death Featuring terrifying, heartbreaking, and captivating ghost stories you will be disappointed in this book.This is a guidebook, and not a great one at that Newman will note where paranormal activity has been seen or heard at Civil War era locations and then tell you where at the site that you can potentially experience that for yourself In some cases, the sites mostly forts did not see action in the Civil War Fort Stevens in Oregon, for example but were built around that time His descriptions of the paranormal activity beg for detail and color There s the usual residual haunted happenings at the battleground sounds of gun shots, shouts, etc , but that s the least of the paranormal activity in the area The spirit of a Union soldier is reported to roam Mary Baldwin college, a ghost that s dubbed the Yellow Peril haunts the Virginia Military Institute, and Confederate apparitions have been seen at the Lafayette Inn and the Selma House If that s not enough, the area known as The Wharf, as well as the Staunton Train Deport, are said to be crawling with spirits The most notable of these being the ghost of Myrtle Ruth Knox,...

    The best adjective I could find to describe this book is workaday It knows what it is a list of places ghost aficionados can possibly find their quarry, all associated with the Civil War There are chapters on battlefields and skirmishes, on minor events and on places that are loosely related to the War itself The author s tone is businesslike when he lists the location and the access rules, if any He does enjoy recounting very brief versions of the legends behind the hauntings He has done his research and that s great, but the stories don t include names of people witnessing the events and are pretty routine One of the things I didn t like about the book was that the listings are not organized by location There is an appendix that does that, but then you have to go look each one up by its page It was tiresome to try to link locations together because of that.I recommend this to anyone wanting to travel around to haunting sites, but be ready to go back and forth in the book if you r...
