Staff rides and ranger walks are great, but there’s just no substitute for the insight of an experienced ghost hunter:
Among the stories told was one about a re-enactor who was re-enacting a battle at one point and thought he had been “killed” by another re-enactor. However, after the battle was over, nobody else saw the “killing” re-enactor, and Riley implied it was the spirit of an actual dead soldier who took part in the battle re-enactment, thinking it was real.
A subsequent investigation by four adolescents and their dog revealed that the “spirit” was actually a local con man in disguise. When reached for comment, the malefactor stated, “I would’ve gotten away with it, too, if it hadn’t been for those meddling kids!”
