With its 100 year history of infant mortality, violence, murder, war, and thousands of ghastly deaths, it’s little wonder that Carnton Plantation is haunted. Thousands travel each year to visit its hallowed grounds in the hopes of spotting a ghost themselves. What is perhaps more surprising is that no one has thought to chronicle the accounts of Carnton’s many ghost stories and put them in a book for readers of all ages.
However, Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, a former Carnton tour guide and the author of dozens of popular Civil War books, has rectified this situation by providing us with the first nonfiction book ever written about the goblins of Tennessee’s most haunted Civil War house.
“Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories: True Tales of the Unexplained from Tennessee’s Most Haunted Civil War House!” is loaded with both fun and serious facts touching on numerous topics, from the American Civil War, plantation life, Victorian culture, to 19th-Century medicine, genealogy, and slavery. It is all written from the South’s point of view, a refreshing perspective that enriches an already fascinating subject: a Southern plantation full of Civil War ghosts! Available on Amazon
A Deeper Look:
Included is a complete list of the dead Rebel soldiers buried at the McGavock Confederate Cemetery, over 100 photos and illustrations of paranormal energies, Carnton Mansion and the grounds, maps of the property, a wonderful and useful “Ghostly Glossary,” a history of both Carnton and the Battle of Franklin II, and factual discussions on Lincoln’s War.
Additionally, Colonel Seabrook, who is related to the founders and owners of Carnton, has thoughtfully included a family tree for the plantation clan. Entertaining yet educational, diverting yet gripping, this is a book that everyone from ghost-hunters to Civil War buffs will want on their shelf. The foreword is by the team leader of SyFy Channel’s TV series “Killer Contact.” Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories is available in paperback and hardcover.
