Recently in class we discussed paranormal and pop culture. In the power point the statics said 75% of people believe in the paranormal, I am one of those people. I do think there is such thing as paranormal like ghost, spirits and all the others that go along with paranormal activity. I wanted to see the most haunted/paranormal places in the United States so I went on the website http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-most-haunted-cities-in-the-u-s.php and saw the top ten. The third most haunted place was Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The reason of its haunting is because of the "The Devil’s Den" over 150,000 total soldiers converged on the scene, and when the battle was over as many as 50,000 were killed, wounded, or missing. The shadow of the battle still stands over the town today, and many claim the ghosts of dead soldiers haunt the battlefields.
The second most haunted place is located in Savannah, Georgia and is known by the name of
The Hampton Lillibridge House. "At one point during construction, a portion of the roof collapsed, killing one of the workers. Other builders claimed they would hear voices and footsteps whenever they were alone, and that pieces of construction equipment would often be thrown across the room". what is even creepier people said they often spotted a man in a black suit staring at them from inside the house. "Countless exorcisms and investigations have taken place at the house since, and it has gone through several owners, but the presence that haunts it is said to still remain there today".
The most haunted place record is located in New Orleans, Louisiana and the name of the building is the LaLaurie House. The building belonged to physician Louis LaLaurie and his socialite wife Delphine. As the story begins, "it was rumored at the time that the couple treated their slaves viciously, and there was evidence Lady LaLaurie was responsible for the murder of a 12-year-old girl. The rumors were validated when one night a fire broke out in the mansion’s kitchen. Firemen raced to the scene, and when they kicked down a door to the slave quarters they were astonished to find several slaves chained to the wall in a kind of makeshift dungeon". Many have since claimed that the LaLaurie’s were performing grotesque surgical experiments on the slaves
