What does everyone think? Fun way to spend a night or just a clever way for businesses to cash in on gullible tourists?

I went on one to humor a friend. Never again. If they would stick to the "ghostly stuff" they would be ok but they start throwing out historical facts, and, well...this guy's facts just wasn't jiving. He said Buford took 100% casualties. After that, I was thoroughly disgusted. :roll:

I swear you look more like Pee Wee Herman each time I see that picture of your mug on the site.

Quality of the person doing the tour makes all the difference I think!

Went on one in DC years ago and it was really good.

Highlight was the Decatur House in which apparently Stephen Decatur's ghost is well known to haunt it. His ghost is his pair of trousers floating around the house! :mrgreen: 8)
