Over the past 60 yrs, I have been involved in taking part in various Civil War battles as what are referred to as reenactors. We "act" as soldiers from various states, both Union and Confederate, dress in period clothing, ranging fro simple to elaborate. Depending on how much money one is willing to invest to fully "play the part". Almost every Civil War battlefield is involved. Some are famous, others are simply "footnotes" in discussing the "war".I started when I was 7, along with m parents, g. father and g, mother, from both sides of my parent families. I have found out that I had 14 men, "cousins" if you will, that joined from North Carolina to serve. Most joined simply to get off the farms and from letters sent home thought it was a "grand adventure"and would not last more than a year, at best, or so they thought. Some surrendered in April, 1865, along with the Army of Northern Virginia, commanded by General Lee. Others fought at a small North Carolina town called Bentonville against a Union army commanded by General Sherman, later in 865. All 14 made it back, worn out and road weary but all didn't loose arms or legs after 4years of fighting. I have visited the battlefields, time an again, and have witnessed "events", "spoke with "persons" from 1863 who simply could not have existed now. Antietam battlefield has a spot called"Bloody Lane" that is quite uncomfortable to me, physically a "mentally. Fredericksburg has its own"haunted sites" on the battlefield as well as in town. The same can be said of Gettysburg."Ghosts" are simply out, about everywhere, town included. Bentonville as well as Fort Fisher, have their own "fair share" of "unexplained happenings". Put simply, ALL are"haunted" to one degree or another. Having witnessed events, had personal contact with "whatever"," ghosts", if you will, that I cannot explain, in anyway, that makes sense to anyone unless they have experienced something like I had on numerous occasions. Visit these locations, no promises you will experience what I have had but then again you might. Good luck.
