      I too am a Wilmer fan. He once "published" about four pages of his grandmother's (I presume) childhood recollections of 9/17 which include a brief visit with Gen. Burnside. Her name was Ada, and she had a bit of a rough go of it, especially in the aftermath. Very compelling story.

      Hello. While I'm not a big proponent of Civil War ghost stories, I am a
      big fan of Wilmer Mumma, and he wrote a book called Ghosts of Antietam.
      You can usually find a copy on www.bookfinder.com for about $45.

      The stories are, for the most part, not true. Someone once told me that
      they asked Wilmer if any of the stories in his ghost book were true. He
      said, "Well, one of them is...maybe."
