In September 1862, fighting from the Battle of Antietam spilled into Sharpsburg's streets. Residents were left to bury the dead from both sides. Today, locals report lingering echoes of that strife, from the faint taps of a Union drummer boy named Charley King to the phantom footsteps of Confederate soldiers charging up the stairs of the Rohrbach House. Two spectral girls seen playing by the Big Spring in Children's Alley may be Savilla Miller and Theresa Kretzer, best friends torn apart by their divided loyalties. Tour guides Mark and Julia Brugh craft a vivid portrait of Sharpsburg in the Civil War and bring to light stories of the ghosts for whom the conflict never ended.


About the Authors

Julia Stinson Brugh, a native of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, grew up surrounded by Civil War legends. She was exposed at an early age to the rich history of the area and experienced a childhood of frequent visits to Antietam. Along with her husband Mark, Julia is the owner and operator of Sharpsburg Tours. Julia has a love of oral history and mythology of common folk, which contributed to the compilation of mysterious tales described in this work.

Mark P. Brugh has studied Civil War history for more than thirty years. This passion led to the inception of the Sharpsburg Tour Company and the Gravediggers and Ghosts of Sharpsburg Ghost Tour, which offer both historical tours of the town and family friendly ghost tours with a strong historical foundation. He is a member and volunteer for the C&O Canal Association and the Sharpsburg Historical Society. He is also a member of the Hagerstown Civil War Roundtable and the Save Historic Antietam Foundation.
