Civil War Ghosts of Georgia Volume 1 (Bury My Bones)
Courtney begins our haunted history journey with Volume One on Civil War Ghosts of Georgia surveying the sites of bloody engagements as the Civil War raged through Georgia, starting in the mountains of northwest Georgia at Chickamauga through the Atlanta Campaign and the infamous March to the Sea the following year. But, Georgia's time in the war truly began in 1861. As the war slowly made its way to Georgia's doorstep in the first couple of years before it left the fighting men of the North and South on the battlefields of their Western Theater landscape, Georgia's sons found themselves across the Eastern Theater from Chancellorsville to Gettysburg, Sharpsburg to Murfreesboro and beyond. Soldiers and Generals left home in hopes of securing a Confederacy and maintaining their views on life in the South. Georgia had one of the largest shows of force and provided a massive landscape to the American Civil War. As such, there remains a spirit of a fighting Georgia, spirits of her conflicted past and plentiful tales of souls who have long left this physical world, yet have left behind legacies, legend, and tales of curious lore. There's even a legendary Georgia canine who bequeathed unto us a story of love and loyalty in a time fraught with death and fear. Explore where the men of Georgia fought and how they banded together as brothers in arms, as friends and as family. Journey through the war in Georgia's backyard and beyond. Learn how the Georgia of present is still defined by the harrowing past of 1861-1865 in Civil War Ghosts of Georgia.

Revolutionary War Ghosts of Connecticut
Bloody battlefields and raucous taverns in Connecticut served as the backdrop for pivotal figures and bold actions vital to the American Revolution. Nathan Hale is said to still conduct lessons in New London and East Haddam, and many suspect that George Washington occasionally visits the Shaw Mansion and Fairfield's Sun Tavern. The presence of notorious traitor Benedict Arnold is often felt in the Leffingwell Inn and at Ye Antientist Burial Ground in New London, where he commanded troops numbering 1,600 as a newly turned Loyalist. Picnickers claim to see apparitions of wounded soldiers seated among them at Fort Griswold in Groton. Step foot into a time when the Sons of Liberty, Tories and Patriots changed the course of history as author Courtney McInvale uncovers the Revolutionary haunts of Connecticut.
