The Civil War pinned brother against brother, and countless lives were lost during this chaotic, violent, and tragic period in American history. Thousands of souls from this time are still believed to wander the Earth because of unfinished business. Sadly, many of the souls of these lost soldiers never got a chance to say goodbye to their loved ones. Hence to why the Spiritualism movement rose to such prominence as families yearned for closure. Informal Paranormal was thrilled to talk to author Michelle L. Hamilton about Civil War ghosts and hauntings.
