Follow Zwicker, author of Haunted Portsmouth and Haunted Pubs of New England, as she expertly navigates through this storied Yankee seaport's collection of creepy graveyards, tragic shipwrecks, eerie lighthouses and more. You'll discover such haunting yarns as the story of Lydia Carver-the "ghost bride" who drowned just offshore on the eve of her marriage - as well as the tale of the British captain and the American commander whose ghosts square off at nighttime in a famous local cemetery, a chilling reenactment of their fatal War of 1812 naval engagement. Read Haunted Portland and discover the dark side lurking beneath Portland's picture postcard exterior.
