The dimly seen ghost of a soldier stood on a particular block of Carrollton Avenue in New Orleans.
There were many, many witnesses.
But there were no answers as to why the apparition appeared when and where it did.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can hear me read many of the ghost reports here, readings first heard on episodes of The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts.
NOTE: I am very close to finishing the first chapter of a Spectral Edition book. Look for updates on my progress here at The Merry Ghost Hunter site and on my Facebook author page.
