Ripped from the Headlines of the Past, this book is a new departure for Chris Woodyard, author of the popular Haunted Ohio and Ghosts of the Past series. Known for her exploration of Ohio’s ghosts, now she goes national with a new collection of Victorian and Edwardian ghosts, evil entities, Fortean mysteries, and the paranormal  panics and obsessions of long ago. There are apparitions of fiery devils, giant ghosts with clubs, Men and Women in Black, death omens, uncanny objects, ghostly murder victims, and ghastly phantom faces peering in windows, all resurrected from original 19th-century sources.

The Ghost Wore Black includes:

*The sinister Women in Black who terrorized communities across the country.

*Fiery devils roaming Bracken County, Kentucky

*The Wild Man of Stamford—madman or myth?

*Banshees in Indiana

*The girl who married a ghost

*A phantom bicyclist who raced with the living

*The bloody handprints left by a ghost in San Francisco

*An angel of death who appeared at a Louisville insane asylum

*And many more long-lost tales of ghosts, hauntings, and mysteries from across America.
