Battle of Kennesaw Mountain
Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield 144th Anniversary
The Ghosts Of The Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield
The Battle at Kennesaw Mountain, north of Atlanta started on June 27th , 1864. More than 3000 soldiers were killed in the next few days and most of them were Union soldiers. The battle at Kennesaw Mountain was one of the most bloody of the Civil War. Almost as soon as the Battle was over the Ghost Stories started. People visiting the area would see soldiers on the battlefield and hear screams and gun shots. Recently people have saw whole groups of soldiers and thought a Civil War reenactment was going on.
Housing sub divisions have been built on part of the battle field and people have saw the ghosts of Civil War soldiers walking in their houses and yards. Another interesting thing about the battlefield is that on the anniversary of the battle you can see smoke from the battle that was fought there over the battlefield. Many paranormal investigators have investigated the site and say the area is a hot bed of paranormal activity.
A man and his son were driving thru Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield one night recently when they saw a Union Calvary Officer on a horse galloping thru the park. They watched him come down the hill towards them and when he and the horse he was riding came to the edge of the paved road just down from their car the Union Calvary Officer and his horse simply vanished. This story is most likely a residual haunting which is often seen where great trauma and death have occurred. Paranormal activity is usually great around these type of sites.

The Pirates House , Savannah Georgia
Ghost in Savannah, GA
We were looking for a good place to eat in Savannah and several people told us to try out the Pirates House and boy were we glad we did. The food and service were excellent and our waitress told us of her own supernatural experiences in the restaurant. The restaurant gets its name from the fact that back in the day the pirates who roamed Georgia's coastal waters liked to hang out at the Pirates House. There is a storage room above the main dining room and many times people in the dining room have heard some one walking up there in that room. The staff in the restaurant have reported items in the storage room fly off the shelf's when they have entered the storage room.
There is still an entrance to a tunnel that used to exist under the Pirates House Restaurant. The tunnel used to go from under the Pirates House out to the banks of the Savannah River which is only a short distance from the building. The tunnel was used for two reasons. One was for the Pirates to escape in case their was trouble from authorities and the tunnel was also used to shanghai drunken men from inside the Pirates House. They were taken thru the tunnel to ships that needed crews and forced to work on the ships. It is said that many men and a few women were also killed in the Pirates House and then they were taken thru the tunnel and thrown in the Savannah River to dispose of their bodies.
