In the spirit of Halloween I wanted to find a haunted house to visit, like the downtown jail. I am not a big believer in ghosts but growing up everyone knew a friend who had a haunted room in their home. It was fun to visit a "haunted house" and let my imagination take over.
The problem with ghosts, they are camera shy so that would have been a short blog. As luck would have it I found the next best thing... living ghosts. The Confederate Ghost Walk at Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston is an annual fund raising event hosted by the Confederate Heritage Trust, Inc. for maintenance and repair of monuments at the cemetery. Volunteer actors perform historically accurate skits that relate to Confederate Soldiers buried in the cemetery.
