The Stories Behind This Kansas Cemetery Will Chill You To The Bone

Fort Leavenworth Cemetery is the resting place of thousands of soldiers. Some were well-known, decorated officers, but many were interred as unknown soldiers of war. Some of the graves here go back to 1844 – more than 20 years before it even became an official cemetery.

While it can be a peaceful experience to wander through these historical headstones, you might find that your quiet walk turns into something a bit more creepy. It’s said that many spirits roam this place, doomed to never find the peace of the afterlife.
