Every portion of Central Georgia is thoroughly haunted. Tobe, the ghost of Orna Villa in Oxford, had an appetite for biscuits. Angry spirits near Augusta drove a family from a beautiful old home. Paranormal entities in a home cobbled together from three old houses created a tapestry of supernatural events. People still seek advice from a fortuneteller dead half a century, and a long-deceased girl hitches a ride home on the same night each year. Author Jim Miles presents a ghost story from each of the fifty-one counties in this historic region.

A Dodge County ghost twice saved the lives of a family's children, while one in Liberty County mysteriously extinguished a fire that would have destroyed a historic house.

Former president Jimmy Carter's family consulted a psychic in an attempt to find one of the farm's wayward dogs. A Hall County ranch was plagued by mysterious cattle mutilations made with surgical precision. Eggs, alligators, turtles and frogs have rained down from the heavens across the state, from Columbus to Savannah.

Author Jim Miles explores these and many more in a collection of stories that can be found only in the Peach State.

Harrowing True Hauntings of Horror and Suffering... Claim Your FREE Books Each Week With This Book! If you have studied the paranormal very long, you know that there is a strong tie between trauma and hauntings. Often, a person who experienced some terrible incident in their life continues to haunt that same area after they have died - a murder victim can still be seen in the house or next to the road, a man who was wrongfully executed can still be seen wandering the halls of where he was executed. But, these are all situations in which a person met with trauma at the end of their life - so what about those who lived a life of pain and suffering? Those who had no one to stand up for them and make sure they were treated properly? Those who lived their lives in the walls of a mental asylum - cut off from the world, and subjected to the greatest horrors known to man. In this book, I am going to take you on a journey through mental asylums. I am going to show you the horrors that have taken place, and the grisly aftermath of those horrors. I am going to show you what it was like for men, women, and children who may or may not have had a mental disorder, and the terrifying things that were done to them in this life. As you read through this book, you are going to get a glimpse into the truth - into the lives of men and women whose only crime was that they were different from the rest of the world, and the rest of the world had no tolerance for it. This book is going to show you what you should know about the history of asylums, and those who were mistreated as a result... Here's A Preview Of What's In This Book... -Haunted Hospitals And Asylums: The Modern Horror of the Rockland Psychiatric Center -Haunted Hospitals And Asylums: The Haunted Tunnel of the Eloise Asylum -Haunted Hospitals And Asylums: The Thirteen Steps to Hell -Haunted Hospitals And Asylums: The Unspeakable Atrocities of the Royal Hope Hospital -Haunted Hospitals And Asylums: The Criminal Insanity of Broadmoor -Haunted Hospitals And Asylums: The Terrifying Truth of the Georgia Central State Hospital -Much, much more!

Camp Oglethorpe

Smith and Hoy tell this story not only as an admonition to the consciences of humanity, but to illuminate history and paint a more complete recollection of the encampment at the foot of Seventh Street. Book jacket.

The history of Camp Oglethorpe is largely overshadowed by that of nearby Camp Sumter in Andersonville, Georgia. It exists primarily as a footnote in the telling of Civil War prison narratives. A comprehensive reckoning reveals a saga that brings to light Camp Oglethorpes decades-long role as a military training ground for Georgias volunteer regiments and as a venue for national agricultural fairs which drew thousands of visitors to Macon. Its proud heritage, however, attracted the attention of leaders of the Confederate government. To the chagrin of Macons citizens, the acreage at the foot of Seventh Street was surreptitiously repurposed in 1862 and 1864. Although conditions at Camp Oglethorpe never approached the appalling state experienced by POWs at Andersonville, its proximity to Camp Sumter cast a pall over the site. As Central Georgia recovered from the tangible vestiges of war, bitter memories minimized interest in restoring the property to any of its previous incarnations.
