This large and very actively haunted cemetery is known for the ghostly weeping Greenwood Bride, and it’s also home to many Confederate soldiers’ spirits. The soldiers were prisoners in the Civil War, and died of yellow fever only to be cast into unmarked graves. The soldiers have been known to confront cemetery visitors. There are other spirits here too; ghost lights have been seen along the cemetery’s southern border.
