Battlefield Ghosts are seen at places with violence, trauma and intense emotion that are typically subject to hauntings. There are no places more violent than battlefields, and it is rare to hear of a battlefield that isn’t haunted. Most battlefield hauntings are residual hauntings where fragments of the battle are replayed over and over again. Other hauntings are from spirits who have not crossed over, most likely because they feel they can’t due to the nature of their death. Some believe retrocognition is also an element in battlefield hauntings.
