Books: by Title: Ghosts of 1812: History, Folklore, Tradition and the Niagara War
In Western New York, you're never far from a battlefield...
Thousands "walk, work and live today above exact spots at which, in a different age, somebody killed, and somebody else died."
Forgotten burials, bloody ambushes and tomahawk fights on Main Street...
No wonder we have ghosts.
Take a haunted history tour into the 1812 war on the Niagara Frontier: heroes, villains, comedies, adventures, disasters, and a legacy of supernatural folklore.
Mason Winfield has combined his long fascination with Western New York history, with his interest in the paranormal, to create this unique look at the War of 1812. The conflict raged throughout the region, and some of the turning points of the war -- and the spirits they left behind -- are right here in our own backyard.
