Highland Road, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Many places in Louisianna are haunted by civil war era ghosts. One such place is a spot on Highland Road near Lee Drive in Baton Rouge.
Baton Rogue became a strategic area for both Union and Confederate soldiers and was fought over fiercely. It is estimated that over 1,000 soldiers lost their lives in the conflict over Baton Rogue.
Today, the grisly ghosts of confederate soldiers can be seen crossing Highland Road. Most sightings take place in early fall during the months of September and October.
Witnesses say that the ghosts are a gory sight. They appear with wounds that they suffered in battle, covered in blood and some missing limbs.
Others have reported seeing only one bloodied soldier hobbling his way across the road.
This haunting has caused many calls to the local police department about injured men on the road. However, each time the police investigate nothing is ever found.

I used to live at Burbank and lee... right down the street from highland lee. I was sitting on my balcony with my roommates one night, we had a trashcan sitting on the corner of our balcony and out of nowhere the top of the trashcan just flew up and my roommate screamed did yall fucking see that and of course were all like omg what was that and she was like the guy did it, he was dressed like a soldier but as soon as he pushed the top up he disappeared!
I've heard this story quite a few times, even before I moved to BR. A little off topic but sort of related - we live in a townhouse complex in the medical district and I'm wondering if anybody knows what used to be over here before the 1970s? This place was built around then so it's not too old but we have a ton of strange things happening in our house. Footsteps, talking, things disappearing then turning up in plain sight, doors flinging open, seeing people in our house that aren't really there and 100 other things we can't explain. Any ideas?
