The ghosts of war - Ghosts of War (2018) - IMDb



Even before the rebels reached Haiti's capital, corpses began turning up. Photographers found two men's bodies on Friday morning near John Brown Avenue, the main thoroughfare between Port-au-Prince and the upmarket suburb of Petion-Ville. One victim was in handcuffs. Both had died from shotgun blasts to the head. Near an inner-city market was the body of a man who had been castrated and slashed to death with a machete. A young boy's corpse lay just outside the city's seaport, not seeming to trouble the thugs who loitered nearby, waiting to pounce on unwary looters trying to haul away anything portable.

No police were in sight. Vehicles rolled through the city's nearly empty streets, packed with men known to frightened Haitians as chimeres -- "ghosts"--vigilantes loyal to Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the only freely elected president in Haiti's 200-year history. The men wore face paint and bandannas and carried old rifles, pistols and machetes. "We are ready to fight," said Luckenson St. Clair, 26 and unemployed. "We are prepared to die to defend our president." Sporadic gunfire rattled in the distance, and helicopters droned overhead, lifting foreign nationals out to safer places.

There is speculation over the existence of ghosts from the American Civil War . Among the locales that have become famous for Civil War ghosts are the Sharpsburg battlefield near Sharpsburg, Maryland ; Chickamauga battlefield in Georgia ; Harper's Ferry, West Virginia ; Buras, Louisiana ; and Warren, Arkansas . [1]

The Battle of Gettysburg was the largest battle in North America . It has many ghost stories. The Soldiers' Orphanage cellar is said to make even psychics too afraid to enter the house, due to its legend. [2] The Herr Tavern was built in 1815, but during the battle it was used as the first Confederate hospital at Gettysburg, where amputations often resulted in limbs being thrown out through the window to be collected later, only for many of the soldiers to die afterward. As a result, four of the guest rooms are said to be haunted, and the rooms are numbered so that there is no room 13. [3]

The interest of ghosts and Gettysburg remains to the present day. In recent times, people have claimed to have seen ghost soldiers, and sometimes even ghost battles, in many places around Gettysburg, Pennsylvania . [4] Eight separate companies offer ghost tours in Gettysburg—some seasonally, and some all year. [5]

The remarkable pictures overlay modern scenes from France with atmospheric photographs taken in the same place during the war.

Historical expert Jo Teeuwisse, from Amsterdam, began the project after finding 300 old negatives at a flea market in her home city depicting familiar places in a very different context.

She researched the background to each of the most interesting finds and created a beautiful series of pictures by super-imposing the old pictures on top of new ones.
