The Ghost Adventures team traveled to Vicksburg, Mississippi, on Saturday night to do some paranormal investigating in multiple locations in the first of a two-part episode featuring this historic southern city. As always, Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley, and Jay Wasley discovered plenty of paranormal evidence of hauntings in two locations during the first installment of this Ghost Adventures episode, but they also broke some new ground in the paranormal investigation field with a completely new investigative technique.
Instead of simply relying on devices that can allow spirits to channel their energy into communicating, Ghost Adventures went a step further and used paranormal technology to create their own “vortex” of energy in the hope it would add more energy that spirits could manipulate. And judging from the results, that’s exactly what some spirits in Vicksburg did, and they did it on camera.
If you haven’t seen the most recent episode of Ghost Adventures in Vicksburg, suffice it to say that spoilers follow.
While there are plenty of historic southern cities that people think of when they think of hauntings and ghost tours, such as New Orleans, Savannah, and Charleston, South Carolina, many may not be aware of the bloody history of Vicksburg, in the context of the Civil War. Vicksburg sits at the southern tip of the great Mississippi Delta and was considered a crucial location strategically during the Civil War. Many battles were fought there and many lives were lost.
