Maryland has been an important crossroads since its settlement more than 375 years ago. That strategic location has provided the Old Line State with a rich history and a large body of folklore, from the seafaring legends of the Eastern Shore to the mountain tales of the rugged western counties. Included in this collection of more than 140 stories are tales of ghosts of executed Hessians in Cecil County, the haunts of Fort McHenry, spirits of notorious Maryland residents John Wilkes Booth and Edgar Allen Poe, tragic specters at the Antietam Battlefield, and the tortured ghosts of prisoners of war at Point Lookout.
