Beside the Potomac and the twice-blooming wisteria, local author Michael Lee Pope takes readers on a thrilling journey with his collection of historic ghost lore. Join him as he searches for the identity of the Female Stranger of Gadsby's Tavern and wanders the lonely halls of Woodlawn Plantation to encounter Alexandria's restless souls.
