Fantastic stories include reports of what was first believed to be a reenactment of a battle in Bentonville that later proved to be an actually ghostly sighting, people discovering that their new homes are inhabited by some unexpected paranormal guests, sightings of long dead sentries from the past, sightings of ghostly soldiers, and repeated sightings of mysterious balls of fire seemingly rising up out of a local cemetery and bouncing of a nearby home, leaving nothing in its wake but some ash as evidence of its presence.
