Episcopal High School - Real Alexandria Haunt
Built in 1839, the Episcopal High School in Alexandria has operated as a boarding school for most of its existence. However, for a period of five years the campus was commandeered to be used as a hospital for soldiers in the Civil War. Famed poet Walt Whitman was among the staff and acted as a nurse in the hospital. In the rear of the campus is a large wooded area where, during the war a trench was dug to connect forts in Virginia and Maryland. No apparitions have been seen here, but there are reports of ghostly soldiers and horses making noise in the woods to this day. Some say that the sound of screaming, wounded soldiers can also be heard in the school buildings.
