Oh, yeah, there is a lot of Civil War battlefields and cemeteries around.

Where I grew up we had our own Civil War ghost story of sort. There was an old, long-abandoned house back in the woods. Supposedly, the Confederates found a Yankee hiding in the house . . . which, apparently, wasn't good for the Yankee in question.

Don't worry, we don't hang Yankees anymore. Well, not very often. ;-)

Ok, depends on who told the story but sometimes it's green eyes. Here's the scoop:
Chickamauga Battlefield - There are many reports of seeing a mysterious set of glowing green eyes from a ghost of a confederate soldier. Even during the war, soldiers had reported him looking over the dead during battles. Also, There is an old tower here that is visible from the main road. The top four steps have a mysterious blood stain on them. People have tried to remove the stains, but to no avail. They always seem to return. A mysterious being haunts the area beneath the stairs at night!

Here's a link to haunted Georgia:
