SHOCK Paranormal is proud to be the contact point for all things paranormal with Perryville Battlefield. In the coming months, we will be offering exclusive opportunities to investigate the battlefield and some of the surrounding homes and areas. We’ll offer scheduled tours for those curious about the unusual activity that has been witnessed by many at the battlefield. We’ll also offer more intimate investigation opportunities for those seasoned investigators and their teams.
Updated dates and times will be added to this page as they become available.
- Battlefield: As described by the Civil War Trust “The largest military engagement in the strategically pivotal border state of Kentucky, the Battle of Perryville ensured that the region remained solidly in Northern control for the remainder of the war…. At the close of the day’s fighting, the two armies left more than 7,400 dead and wounded on the field.”
- Dye House & Grounds: Approx. 120 acres. Confederate General Simon Bolivar Buckner’s headquarters during the Battle of Perryville. Used as field hospital after the battle
- Sleettown : Approx. 96 Acres. African-American community situated northwest of Perryville in the 19th century. As described by the Perryville Battlefield Preservation Association: “This small community is known as the “Gateway to Freedom” because many former slaves lived here after national emancipation. Sleettown had its own store, a “honky-tonk” restaurant, homes, and a cemetery. An integrated community, Sleettown thrived in the segregated South during a time when many black and white families did not interact. According to the brochure, “Even though Sleettown remained a black community, the relationship with neighboring whites was open and friendly. Often blacks and whites would come together in the evenings to visit or play a game of cards.”
