- Is that JFK's ghost rising from the Oval Office? 
- Is our 16th President still haunting the Lincoln Bedroom? 
- Where are all of those spirits surrounding Lafayette Square coming from? 

The restless ghosts of presidents, a first lady, assassins and military officers roam the hallways of old homes, a church, and even the White House. 

Throughout our Nation's Capitol, we can hear the ghosts of politicians and War Heroes Past rising from their graves while witches come out from hiding. Tonight they rise from the Lincoln Bedroom, the walls of the Octagon and the statues from Lafayette Park. From the White House to your house, we will meet up with the historical haunted spirits of Washington, D.C. as their reclaim their property and try to scare us out of the Nation's Capital. 

Violent quarrels, vicious attacks, murder, suicide -- why is it such turbulent events in Washington history seem concentrated around the seven acres of Lafayette Park? During the day, it bustles with White House staff, visitors and office workers. As evening descends, however, so does an almost tangible drape of stillness; it’s not hard to imagine the park’s inky expanse of yesteryear. Indeed, it is the most haunted site in the city. 

How the ghosts and spirits came into being is the subject of this eerie perambulation. You’ll see the home of navy hero Stephen Decatur, hear about man of letters Henry Adams and his troubled wife Clover, and relive the night of April 14, 1865 when the grim reaper stalked more than Abraham Lincoln. (Could the White House be enshrouded by “the Presidential Circle of Death”?) You'll end this walk at the house considered the most haunted home in the city: The Octagon.As Mr. Poe said, that "evil things, in robes of sorrow, assailed the monarch's high estate."
