Famous Phantoms, Sinister Sites, and Lingering LegendsBook - 2015
Philadelphia is known for many things: brotherly love, Revolutionary War history, passionate sports fans, cheesesteaks, and Rocky are merely a few of them. But the Founding Fathers didn't just walk the streets of Philadelphia 200 years ago, many still walk here...or so the story goes. Along the streets of Philadelphia you can find the ghosts of Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross, Alexander Hamilton, and Edgar Allen Poe. But those are only the famous ones. There are a few less known ghosts creeping around the historic streets. Nearby Fort Mifflin certainly has its share of hauntings, given its long history of sheltering soldiers and holding prisoners from the Revolutionary War up to the Civil War. And given all the cemeteries that have been established and then relocated--or not--it's almost a given that thousands of disturbed graves might stir up a ghost or two.
