Oldest Ghosts

Oldest Ghosts? What does that mean? Ghosts have been around for as long as people have existed on this planet. But in 1990, just a decade ago, St. Augustine's ghosts were not known by the general public. Why not?

Oldest Ghosts tells of unexplained exploits by the spirits dwelling in St. Augustine, the oldest city of European origin in the United States. Judge John Stickney watches from a tree limb above his cemetery monument. A Colonial-period ghost hangs laundry in a Spanish courtyard. The ghost of Will Green, who died in 1802, routinely enters the bodies of men drinking in a bar. Some residents and visitors tolerate the playful spirits. Others prefer not to acknowledge them. Either way, the ghosts abide.
