America’s Forefathers Haunt On Fourth Of July

BOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Don’t be surprised to see the spirits of Ben Franklin or Paul Revere spooking the streets of Boston today (July 4).

So says Hillary Kidd, who runs the Haunted Boston ghost tours.

According to Kidd, the Fourth of July is a day when America’s forefathers and other famous figures commonly haunt historic locations to celebrate the nation’s birthday.

She says, “It’s such an important day in U.S. history that I think there will be a lot of ghostly activity.”

The tour hits haunted sights, like Boston Common, the Omni Parker House hotel, and the Granary Cemetery, where Samuel Adams, victims of the Boston Massacre, and Paul Revere are buried.

Kidd says, “People who take a picture of Paul Revere’s headstone have been known to get a ghostly, white image in their picture.”

Mary Dyer, the famous Boston Martyr who was executed for her Quaker beliefs in 1660, will most likely pop up in tourists’ pictures at the sight of her hanging today too.
