    I went surfing wih that for a subject and got a story about a soldier ghost in Burlington Ontario about a ghost named Alfred (killed at Dieppe) who haunts a bronze statue and says"" Ï lived a hero and died a heroe ""and moves the hands on the rifle on the statue. people report hearing soldiers marching and gruff commands being given. and there was a soldier by that name from that town. but the statue is actually a ww1 statue. what do you think?

    There are hundreds of ghost stories and haunted sites centering around the American Civil War.This is the first I've heard about any other war.

    During the English Civil War, a Royalist commander went back to a battlefield a short while after a battle - and saw the whole thing being re-enacted by a ghostly army. He claims to have seen several people known to him who died during the battle taking part...

    These stories are common. :wink:

    There are also plenty of such stories in WW1.

    Does anyone for example know the story about the angels of Mons?

    Bizarrely similar to the story told by Crusaders besiged at Acre.

    They were holed up in Acre with no food, then Peter the Hermit (I think it was him - certainly some nutty holy guy) 'finds' the spear that pierced Christ's side. So the whole army fasts for 3 days, then goes out to fight the besieging Muslim army.
    When they arrive on the field of battle, suddenly an army clad all in white rides down, and drives the besigers off the field. The Crusaders assert that this was St George and an army of angels, sent by God to aid his loyal subjects.

    In reality, it was another Muslim army, who were at war with the first. :grin:

    Maybe you should go to Burlington and you'd see why. It's a good palce to be dead.
    (Apologies in advance to al Burlingtonites. And yes, I have been there.)
