PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION: HAUNTED CIVIL WAR BATTLEFIELD FAR FROM THE GLORY...FORGOTTEN BY MOST…THEIR GHOSTS WALK THAT KILLING GROUND TO THIS DAY!
They were the forgotten men! It was the Mouth of Hell!Those who died are restless souls…crying out for help…wandering the battlefield looking for lost friends…waiting for the proper burial that NEVER came!
The bodies were forgotten for so long that many became fodder for the roaming pigs. A local farmer whose family lived on the battlefield during the Battle of Antietam took me to this place. He wouldn't even get out of the car.
"My grandmother heard the screams comin' from here from thedying about a week after the battle. She made my grandfather and uncles get in the wagon to go check. When they got here, they could hear the screams and wails of the wounded…but wasn't one ofthem left alive. Never used that part of our fields agin. Never came here agin. They didn't eat the pigs that come down here,neither. You stay away from here, Missy! This here's the mouth ofHell!"
AND, THEIR GHOSTS ARE SAID TO BE ACTIVE RIGHT NOW!THIS SATURDAY NIGHT!
