Spirits of '76: Ghost Stories of the American Revolution

Daniel W. Barefoot

John F. Blair, Publisher
$15.95 paperback
6 x 9
256 pages
October 2009

Where history abounds, so do ghosts. And thus, the Revolutionary War yielded the first truly “national” ghosts of the United States. Arranged geographically from Maine to Georgia, these 44 full-length stories offer the ghostly lore of the 13 original American colonies, plus Vermont and Maine.

The accounts will take you to the 18th-century battlegrounds, homes, public buildings, and other sites where the spirits of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, Molly Pitcher, and Benedict Arnold, just to name a few, are said to linger.

In addition to the 44 stories, Spirits of ’76 offers a directory of additional haunted Revolutionary War sites for each geographic area.
