A very engaging narrative, so much so I couldn't put it down. I began reading it just before going on vacation, and then took it with me to the beach so I could finish reading it.
The author details her trips and investigations at historic battlefields throughout Virginia. Often making two and three separate trips to each one in order to acquire conduct additional investigations and acquire more data. Her perseverance and research paid off too. I've been to a few of the locations in the book and Ms. Brown's observations and descriptions of the look and feel of a place are dead on.
The most interesting chapters for me were Cold Harbor and Chimborazo Park. I lived in Richmond for eleven years and I never heard of some of the fascinating history that Ms. Brown reveals to her readers.
It is a great read--both educational and entertaining. Anyone who is interested in Virginia history, the Civil War, or paranormal investigations will enjoy reading this book.
of the Civil-War haunting books do, this book also gives you a deeper insight
on how folks lived and died and for some the war is never over good book.
This work is well written with great photographs of both the fields of honor as well as interiors of many NPS buildings.
I recommend this book to both those interested in the American Civil War and those who love the mystery of Spirits and Ghosts!
