It is legend, or hearsay, but the myth persists. I trawled the halls regularly, even audibly coaxing at times to Dr. Samuel&nbsp;Mudd<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, the villainous co-conspirator against Lincoln, or any other poor soul who may have lived a life unfulfilled and made a specter amongst the fortified brick. There were plenty of candidates. Wed, 20 Feb 2013 17:00:00 +0000 Nathaniel Sandler 9590 at http://blog.wlrn.org Dry Tortugas Dispatch: Beckoning Birds, a Lighthouse, and No Ghost
