Civil War Ghost Stories – Up Close and Personal

a few months ago

Last month we posted a spine-tingling and amazing story about the Ghosts of Gettysburg that just might make believers out of anyone.  If you missed it, check it out here:

Since then, we’ve collected a few other first hand, up close and personal stories from some of you out there. We’d like to share a few of them with you today:

Here is one from Mike:

“We went to Gettysburg a few years back. While at the Devil’s Den taking pictures I took 2 in quick succession of the same place. Maybe 10 seconds apart.

“When we got back home a few days later we looked at the pictures. The first was normal. The second had smoke as from a campfire rising from behind the rocks?????”

As you may know, the Devil’s Den is known for its numerous large rocks.

Jerry sent this one:

“Dave Shuffet, used to host Kentucky Life, a weekly show about life in every county and city in the Bluegrass.”

“Dave is a very nice, humble, and very believable man.”

“He went to the Octagon house in Franklin Kentucky. He filmed a ladle by the fire place start rocking by itself. Flashlights turn on and off when twisted firmly in place to off.”

Dave came out of there, very shaken.

Octagon Hall is shown during the Civil War is pictured above. It was the home of Andrew Caldwell, a supporter of the Confederacy. In 1862, the famous “Orphan Brigade” camped there, and later the Union Army spent time at Octagon. Confederate soldiers knew they could get shelter and medical care and be hidden from Union forces.

But today it is known as one of the most haunted spots in the South.

Visit it someday soon – if you dare!
