    Said to be of an army hospital nurse, this postmortem photograph shows a young woman holding a book, possibly a small bible or testament. The revenue stamp on the back dates this image to 1864. Annapolis was the site of one of the largest Union Army hospitals during the Civil War, and at least five female nurses died of diseases caught while tending patients there. Three of them died in late 1863 and two died in early 1865.

The Marlboro State Psychiatric Hospital - opened in 1931 in Marlboro, New Jersey but by 1979, 131 patients fell ill due to food poisoning, one woman, who escaped unnoticed for 48 hours, froze to death nearby, and a man was kept tied to his bed for 80 hours over the span of 5 days and died due to blood clots. Over 940 patients died and were buried with their graves marked with only numbers. It's no wonder spirits are restless and make themselves known here.
