Confederate ghosts will greet visitors

An annual tradition takes visitors to a South Carolina city back to the Civil War era and the spirits from that period.

The Confederate Ghost Walk is today and Saturday in Charleston's Magnolia Cemetery and visitors can see vignettes about those buried in the cemetery, the Associated Press reports.

The yearly event, using re-enactors from across the state, is sponsored by the Confederate Heritage Trust. Proceeds provide for maintenance at the cemetery including the plot where the crews of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley are buried.

An estimated 4,000 Confederates are buried at Magnolia.
