The ghosts of Civil War soldiers still inhabit the battlefields of America's Southern States. Shots ring out, ghostly warriors march, and phantom figures, tents, and cannons appear. Read firsthand accounts by re-enactors who are joined by spirits of Confederate and Union soldiers. These ghosts call them to the line and entreat us to "never again let this happen." Haunted battlefields at Perryville, Sacramento, Stones River, Shiloh, Franklin, and Andersonville Prison carry chilling stories. Read about battle fog near Benton-White Road that hid spirit soldiers clacking and rattling their canteens. Breakfast with a lost Rebel drummer in Perryville, Kentucky, who joins re-enactors by the campfire. Feel sickness when you visit the Bloody Pond in Shiloh, where soldiers still take their last drink. Explore these battlefields to find invisible rifle volleys, a disappearing cemetery, and soldiers who await you.
