Paranormal legends are stories of ghosts and spirits told by people who have experienced encounters with these unknown energies.
Along the streets of Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, a strange, gaunt,
white-haired man walks along with a small black dog at his side. The two odd
companions stroll by the storefronts and building. The tourists strangely take
notice of the man's eerie resemblance to the man that made this town famous, John
Brown. Everyone who has seen this man respect his resemblance, and those who
don’t notice sometimes ask to get a photograph with him even though he is not
Let's just get right down to the beginning of John Brown’s fame.
John Brown started as a good man. His feelings against slavery were
very strong. He went to make speeches and even have dinner with the President.
This is going to be one of the worst decisions he will ever make.

The Cash Town Inn
The Cash Town was 30 miles from Gettysburg. While the soldiers where delivering a message one of the soldiers was getting tired of walking and decided to stay at the Cash Town Inn since it was only two miles from where they were. One of soldiers got scared because he had heard the stories from the men back at camp who had made it up. So the soldier said, "Let's just continue and finish delivering the message today." But the other man kept on suggesting that they staythe night. So the scared man said, "lLet's go to the Inn." The men started their way to the Cash Town Inn. Twenty minutes later they had arrived at the Inn. When they saw the deserted town they had a chill run up their back. They rushed inside. When they got there the Inn was also deserted. The men rushed up stairs and got in a room and laid down to try to get some sleep. As night fell the men grew tired by the minute. Suddenly, they heard a screaming sound and gun fires. The soldiers got up with their guns loaded and ready to fire. They slowly walked down stairs and were more frightened then they where when they got there. They both smelled something strange. Instantly they both recognized it. It was the smell of human flesh. The smell led them to a room which they had discovered was the remains of hundreds of thousands of dead people's bodies. What they saw was the most frightening thing they had ever seen in their lives. Then suddenly one of the men fainted and the other soldier ran out the Inn.
