Big Book of Virginia Ghost Stories, The


“Packs big entertainment, from famous ghosts and weird hauntings to bizarre but riveting true stories that will give you quite a chill.” –Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits

No state has seen more bloodshed and early deaths than Virginia, mostly because it was center stage for two centuries of war from early Indian conflicts and the Revolution to the Civil War. For this reason, it is also the most haunted state. The stories of ghosts from these wars, as well as the spirits of the old manor houses and plantations, are included in this treasury of more than 100 stories from each region of the Old Dominion. Here are the stories of vengeful slave ghosts, spirits of Arlington Cemetery, the Woman in Black of Roanoke, the Snow White Dove Spirit, and the spectral returns of George Washington, Robert E. Lee, and John Brown.
