Historian and battlefield guide B. Keith Toney draws on a life-long love of military history and a healthy respect for the supernatural in this collection of tales from blood-soaked battlegrounds. He’s not seen a ghost himself, he says, although he has had some unexplainable encounters. Yet one of the most compelling stories comes from his wife, Jill, who experienced the famous 17-mile-long wagon train that marked the Confederate’s retreat from Gettysburg one sultry summer night. Each story presents a compact history of an important American battle — and the cries of the spirits that still echo over those fields today.
