Abstract:

Dare you not believe? The wispy reappearance of a love-sick young maiden who died nearly 250 years ago. The haunting return of a French soldier who was killed during the Revolutionary War. The mysterious "curse tree" which separated husband and wife in their graves. The strange portrait which moved about on its own. These and other examples of inexplicable psychic phenomena are chronicled in "The ghosts of Williamsburg." Are the stories true? Skeptics may scoff, but a number of credible witnesses who have personally seen or otherwise experienced the "presence" of these spirits swear by them. Judge for yourself. -- Back cover.
