HE MET A GHOST IN GETTYSBURG
Journalist Don Allison went to Gettysburg and met a ghost, and the bucolic Pennsylvania town where the American Civil War reached a turning point is the perfect haunted battlefield to meet a spirit. On episode 76, horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas spend some time with an amazing scholar, sensitive and paranormal journalist from Ohio, Don Allison. He authored a book about his paranormal experiences called I Met a Ghost in Gettysburg. Don shares stories from his book, telling ghost tales from both his house and his trips to Gettysburg. For years, the ghosts of his new home called to him. First, they nearly killed him in a car accident. Then, after he renovated the house, they kept rolling marbles upstairs or pulled pranks like changing radio stations, forcing him to listen to Bowling Green State University play basketball, which was a horror-in-itself because Don’s a Toledo graduate! Don shares his many stories with the paranormal, and British singer David Walton narrates two selections from his book. Also, we bring you music from a folk-singing talent and social protestor, David Rovics: The Last Lincoln Veteran & If I Die Tomorrow. On episode 76: He Met a Ghost in Gettysburg.
