Ghosts on Manassas Battlefield

Norse mythology describes the Battle of Heodenings, where two phantom armies fight for all eternity, the dead rising daily to renew the fight afresh.  Is something like this happening on the Civil War battlefield at Manassas, Virginia?

Paula Ann Kirby, author of  A Yankee Roams at Dusk, describes two types of  hauntings that may be occurring at Manassas, (1) residual hauntings, which are a manifestation of stored up energy replaying endlessly like an old movie, and (2) intelligent hauntings, which are rare instances in which ghosts try to interact with the living.

A brief look at the impact of war on civilians living around Manassas based on first person narratives and family histories.
