Mark and Julia will host and present this tour. They know the streets, alleys and burial places of Confederates in Sharpsburg better than anyone we know. They also know more original, unpublished ghost stories about Sharpsburg too, and their book Civil War Ghosts of Sharpsburg is overwhelming proof of that. After all, they've been studying and researching this topic for more than 30 years. Why not join them and have a fantastic dinner too? Mark and Julia will be back in Captain Bender's after the tour to continue the discussion with you, answer all your questions and sign a book if you'd like.
