A Ghost Report from the Aegis & Intelligencer on November 22, 1867

Spectral Edition

Not all apparitions are, in fact, ghosts.

An Ohio man was first misdiagnosed as dead. He next awoke from a trance in a coffin awaiting final interment! Once he managed to break out, he was spotted in the cemetery — and mistaken to be a phantom!

And then he was shot.


Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
