Summary:
The Civil War depleted and destroyed the resources of our nation, taking, above all, an overshelming human toll. In a nation of only 30 million people, more than half a million died. It's not surprising that this war in which so many died before they could finish the business of living produced an extraordinary number of ghost stories.
