Tonight we welcomed to the show
Civil War Ghosts of South Carolina,
Ghosts of South Carolina Upcountry,
Ghosts of the South Carolina Midlands,
Ghosts of the Pee Dee,
Tally became interested in ghost stories as far back as the fifth grade, when meeting an author who spoke of places and legends of which he'd heard.
He got into how he became an author, via his wife "insistance."
His own ghostly experience was at
on a class field trip, witnessing
Private Daniel Hough's
ghost, walking through a mortar wall.
Tally conveyed how nobody died during the 36-hour bombardment of Fort Sumter April 12, 1861, that started the war between the states, but Private Hough died during the surrender of the fort.
Around this point Skype essentially collapsed, kicked off all of us, and Henry had to call us all back in.
As to Cryptids, the Carolinas have the
Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp
in the late 1980s.
He then spoke about
Queen of the Confederacy,
even on the Confederacy ten dollar bill; Lucy's ghost has been sighted numerous times.
Tally then spoke about crisis ghosts of
events, such as the 1914
Phantom on Horseback,
seen numerous times during week or so before World War I.
He discussed the logistics of the war's conscripting of soldiers.
At Henry's inquiry, Tally spoke on his experience at
After the second break, CC relayed tonight our having listeners in the US, Ireland, Canada, Pakistan, and Great Britain.
Henry asked about one of the
Cry Baby Bridge
legend, and what'd happened to he and his Aussie brother-in-law investigating.
Tally discussed how he investigates, both with teams and on his own.
He also discussed the elderly cat his wife had when they were dating, which passed of old age.
At one point, the cat jumped up onto the counter, which Tally told to hop down; and was reminded the cat had passed two weeks earlier.
Another time, again before marryng, and half thinking as to whether the marriage was a good idea, Tally was reading a sizeable book in bed around 10:30pm.
He looked up to see someone standing in front of his refridgerator.
The figure turned who turned out to be his great-grandfather who'd passed about ten years before, who'd not been aware in life of this apartment Tally would one day own.
The apparition smiled at Tully, and walked to the door, as Tully went to jump up, spilling his iced-tea, ash-tray, breaking his toe with the dropped book, but still only a few seconds had passed and found the apartment was empty and all points of entry locked up tight.
But he noticed his marriage jitters had also faded.
Tally spoke of the poisoning ghost of the
Horseshoe at University of South Carolina,
and the mysterious
Third Eye Man
Of the spots he's researched for his books, he went to
Rivers Bridge State Historic Site,
which he felt had no ghost story connection.
Approaching the bridge, he espied a young soldier standing in the swamp water.
He called at the man to get out of the water, but the man walked a few steps, reacted as though he was shot, fell backwards "into" the water with nary a ripple of the water.
Tully quickly located a park ranger and described what happened.
The ranger told him no one else was in the park all day.
Back at his library he did tons of research but could find no information that would explain the residual haunting.
We would not be Live the subsequent week, as Henry and Kat would be investigating at
and we'd be rebroadcasting

Tally gave out his book information, provided his
email, that he's
