Haunted U.S. Battlefields

Author: Mary Beth Crain

Do scenes of wartime horror conjure up images that haunt the living for generations to come? You can finally decide for yourself with HAUNTED U.S. BATTLEFIELDS, a spine-tingling tour of America’s most legendary locations of human struggle---from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War, from the Indian Wars to World War II and beyond. Most of the battlefield legends on these pages are from the Civil War, which has yielded the greatest number of ghostly sightings. A must for anyone interested in a fascinating realm of military history that most books don’t dare tell, it will have you shivering as you read about:

  • The “Ghost Rider of Little Round Top,” who allegedly turned the tide of the Civil War
  • “Old Green Eyes,” a weird creature that takes various chilling forms at the notorious Chickamauga Battlefield, one of the Civil War’s bloodiest scenes
  • The “Faceless Phantom of Corregidor,” a terrifying entity that haunts a hotel on the infamous “Island of Death” in the Philippines where so many Americans lost their lives during World War II
