A Post Civil War Ghost Story in Florida

Since it is Halloween, I thought you might enjoy a unique ghost story from the years after the Civil War.

This incident took place near Fernandina and was covered by newspapers across the country in 1892.

The story is that of a mysterious spectre that appeared in the night to plow the fields of a farmer. The ghost could be seen from the windows of the man's home, but when family members went out to investigate, the spirit could not be found.
