Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This collection of tales focuses on the restless souls left in the wake of the War Between the States. Roberts gathers history from both sides of the lines, from Georgia to New York to Texas, and presents it from viewpoints both historical and present. By blending her passion for ghost stories with her Southern heritage, Roberts crafts a book which haunts the reader in the same way the Civil War haunts the memory of the United States.

Format: Paperback
I just finished watching 1951s "The Tall Target" about an assassination plot on the life of Abram Lincoln aboard a moving train. Abram Lincoln and the train got me thinking about a story I had once read. And then I remembered it. It was from Nancy Roberts' "Civil War Ghost Stories & Legends." I pulled the book from the shelf and there it was. Being a Civil War buff I bought this book several years ago attracted and intrigued by the title. It had never occurred to me that with all the horrors, suffering and death on America's battlefields during the Civil War that the emergence of ghosts and related supernatural haunts would come to surface. The particular story that I remember most strikingly was "The Night Train Passes." It is all about the reappearance of Abram Lincoln's funeral train. It is spooky. This entire book is spooky. There is something about the images of the Civil War that makes this collection of stories so intriguing, personally haunting yet poignant. I highly recommend this book.

I have done vast research on Civil War Battlefields and sites. I have seen many Ghostly Spirits on Va. Battlefields also at Gettysburg ,PA. They really do exsist. While exciting to see, it is also scary.This was a good book to read.

Found this book to be interesting with the ability to hold ones attention. In addition, it was thought provoking and the material supports many held beliefs regarding the civil war.

I truly enjoyed this book. Anyone who is interested in the history of our country during one of it's tragic eras can learn more than expected by reading this. One of my true interests is the paranormal. I expected to find a few gems from our past but I found much more than that. Not only do you find ghost stories here but you learn about many of our countries hidden heros. Wonderful reading and I plan to purchase more of this writer's works based on this book. Great read!
