This volume delves into 10 of Jackson County's most intriguing legends of the supernatural, mysterious and unexplained! Many of the stories have War Between the States ties and one even focuses around the ghost of a church deacon killed during the Battle of Marianna.
The first half of the book looks into the story of the Ghost of Bellamy Bridge, the tale of a young woman from antebellum times and her tragic death. She is said to haunt historic Bellamy Bridge, a steel-frame structure north of Marianna. The other half of the book delves into nine other legends from Jackson County, including the story of the Ghost of St. Luke's Church. The figure of an elderly man, many believe the ghost is that of Francis Allen, who was killed in the Battle of Marianna on September 27, 1864.
The cover price is $19.95 and the book is available for order now at: http://www.exploresouthernhistory.com/bellamybook.
