More About Ghost Tales of the Civil War

This October, visit the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site to experience Candlelight Theatre's newest spooky offering, Ghost Tales of the Civil War, by James Trofatter!

We all know that the Civil War, that Great Inconvenience for the South, lead to untold deaths, and the memory of this horrible time still reverberates through the collective unconscious of Americans. Well, the dead are not satisfied with the state of the Union. Some have come as spirits, others as the walking dead, but come they have. They have focused their attention on the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site in order to make a statement. What that statement is, remains to be seen. Are you willing to brave this maelstrom of spiritual turmoil to help us understand why the undead and spirits of Blue and Gray are intent on occupying the Presidential Site at this time?

Guests will travel from room to room enjoying performances throughout the National Historic Landmark home of President Benjamin Harrison, including up and down two flights of narrow stairs (elevator assistance is available). Guests will view shorter vignettes standing and longer scenes seated. The performances are approximately 70 minutes long. We recommend this performance for children age 10 and up due to the darkness of the home, length of the performance, and subject matter. Shows begin every 30 minutes from 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm each night.
