In The News: Ghost Spotted at Haunted Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield in Kennesaw, GA

17 12 2008

I found this interesting article a while ago that I felt was appropriate to share on our blog. This is from Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield in Kennesaw, GA (a few miles from haunted Cheatham Hill Battlefield in Kennesaw). A man and his son were driving down the road one night around the mountain when a man on horseback ran across the road directly infront of him, which they believe to be a Civil War ghost.

One Cobb County, Georgia man says that he had a brush with what may have been a real ghost near Kennesaw Mountain earlier this month.

The man, who doesn’t want to be identified, said he and his teenage son were driving through Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield the night of October 8 when they spotted something about to cross the road in front of their car.

Both Civil More..War buffs, they say the rider appeared to be a Union Army cavalry officer complete with a saber in his hand.

This is neat because it puts some belief in what we observe at the Allatoona Battlefield Pass. I hope to investigate the site sometime but I hear it’s extremely difficult to get permission to, let alone sneak in.

Ghostly Sounds- Cheetham Hill and Bulloch Hall

14 12 2008

Cheetham Hill Whistle

Bulloch Hall Rattle

These were the only sounds I captured from Cheetham  Hill and Bulloch Hall.  The whistling sounds from Cheetham were clear enough to be heard by all of us.  Jenn even commented on hearing it accompanied by a “Hey”.  I was not able to hear that on the recording, but you can be the judge of that.  As for Bulloch Hall, it sounded like a door closing and rattling.  Ryan would like me to go back over these recordings since he and the rest of the group heard whispering at Cheetham Hill.  I did not hear at the time nor upon examination of the recordings, but will attempt to see if anything can possibly heard.  I haven’t had a chance yet to go over Marietta Cemetery, I’ve been busy with work and Christmas prep.  I’ll make it a point to go over Marietta and the other recordings tomorrow.

Update: Upon further review of the part of Cheatham Hill where the rest of the group claimed to hear whispering,  I did in fact here whispering on the recording.  However, when I listened closer it turned out to only be Ryan whispering to me or some other members whispering.  It was nothing paranormal that I could determine.

Haunted Cheatham Hill Civil War Battlefield - Part of Kennesaw Battlefield in Kennesaw, Georgia

Reported to be one of the most haunted battlefields in the Atlanta area, Cheatham Hill Battlefield/Kennesaw Battlefield has been known for strange EVPs and ghostly photographs taken both during the day and through the night. The Illinois Monument, located at the top of Cheatham Hill has been reported to be the most active location at the battlefield. This makes sense as feet directly in front of the monument is the exact spot where most of the soldiers were killed in the battle. Could the strange experiences at Cheatham Hill be the ghosts of civil war soldiers residualing haunting the grounds in which they were killed?
