Do you believe in ghosts?Â They say that old soldiers never die.Â Perhaps itâ€™s true.
Old Natchitoches Parish entertains readers with stories and tall tales of Natchitoches Parish, Northwest Louisiana and the Old South – stories that you probably wonâ€™t find in most history books.

They tore down most of the building brick for brick.. They sold off the sanctums and scattered the textbooks far and wide. But they never laid the ghost of Peg- Leg. And a thousand girls who shivered deliciously through his annual visitations for 76 years hope they never will.
The story of Peg- Leg is chronicled in no book, yet he has an important place in the history of a famous old DeSoto Parish School. His biographers are the thousand of men and women who lived and studied on the campus of the Old Mansfield Female College. His memory has persisted long after the lessons taught by the genteel ladies of the college were forgotten. – “Peg” was a young Confederate soldier who was severely wounded in the bitter fighting of spring, 1864. His leg was amputated and he died in the college when it was pressed into use as a hospital preceding the famous Battle of Mansfield April 8 of that year.
