EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

From the days of ancient Greece, people have hurried their steps as they passed by—or, Heaven forbid, walked through—a cemetery after dark. Indeed, over the centuries we’ve developed many a superstition to protect ourselves from restless graveyard ghosts. Haunted Cemeteries exhumes more than two dozen stories of some of the most actively haunted graveyards both in this nation and abroad, including:DIV • The Greenwood Hauntings: Greenwood Cemetery in Decatur, Illinois, is one of the most ghoulish graveyards in America’s Heartland, sporting at least five individual entities, a gaggle of ghost lights, and a whole trainload of Civil War dead./divDIV • Pretty in Pink: The ethereal ghost of the Pink Lady floats over the graves of the Yorba Cemetery in Yorba Linda, California—on June 15 of even-numbered years, that is./div • The Queen of Voodoo: The restless spirit of Marie Laveau, the nineteenth-century Queen of Voodoo, is said to appear in New Orleans’s St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in the form of a gigantic black crow or a phantom black hellhound—when she’s not walking through the French Quarter.
