Sleeping with the Enemy


The ghosts of dead enemy of The Civil War that is.  In 1934, Oswald Young of Petersburg Virginia bought over 2,000 tombstones from the Poplar Grove Cemetery and used them to construct his house.  Just by looking at it you wouldn’t guess what the facade was made of (since the names are apparently facing inward).  But nevertheless, they are tombstones.

But not to worry, as they were just Union soldiers.
