Horowitz's "Confederates in the Attic." 

Here is a little story.  One evening I was having dinner with Frank O'Reilly - Historian for the Jackson Shrine at Fredericksburg NMP.  The subject of Horowitz's book came up.  "Horowitz owes me an employee." says Frank.

Do you remember the scene in the book where he sleeps on the porch at the Jackson Shrine with his realist reenactor buddy?  They wake up in the morning and the whole area is covered in a thick fog.

Frank had just hired a new employee.   As the employee arrived at work, the two "Confederate soldiers" were just getting up.  She saw them and rushed into the office and said:  "Mr. O'Reilly, I quit.  This place is haunted!"
