Appomattox, Virginia, is a relatively quiet small town, with one major event that has shaped the entire public knowledge of its existence, which is of course Robert E. Lee surrendering to Ulysses S. Grant at the McLean house. Of course, being such an important piece of civil war history has also brought a large number of ghost hunters to the area, and there are plenty of sites in an around the city of Appomattox that really make it a paradise for Ghost Hunters and everyday ghost enthusiasts.
The first of these hotspots is the old jailhouse that still stands in Appomattox. Jails always seem to be centers of phantom activity, and this one is no exception. Some people have reported a tapping noise coming from the windows, just as a prisoner may have done in the times that the jail was active.
Another concentration of ghostly activity can be found at an old host across from a local cemetery, where many people have reporting hearing moans, cries, and walking noises. When this particular house was researched, it was discovered that the house was used during the civil war as a hospital, where many confederate soldiers no doubt lose their lives.
