The Ghosts of Charleston includes a myriad of ghost stories from the city. These stories of real, existing specters include the plight of the headless confederate soldier on the historic Battery, unexplained happenings on the Cooper River Bridge, among others. These departed Charlestonians continually try in vain to work out unfulfilled dreams in the sphere of the living. This book chronicles their lives and gives them voice and is appropriate for all age groups.
"In all societies and from the earliest times men have feared the return of the dead. The idea of an entity, doomed to walk the earth in the lonely silence of spirit because of some deed or action connected to its mortal life, wakes us to a terrifying degree of accountability for how we, the living, lead our daily lives.
Some people discard spirits as out of the realm of possibility, despite recorded experiences with ghosts throughout the ages. An intellectual position that dogmatically denies the existence of ghosts is as unscientific as it is narrow-minded. A person may feel more at ease in the world by clinging to denial regarding the spirit realm. But that does nothing to negate its existence."
