Spiritualism: The Fox Sisters
Spiritualism: The Fox Sisters explores a story that began on the night of March 31, 1848 in an isolated farmhouse in upstate New York. Two little girls and their horrified parents seemed to communicate with the dead. In the months and years that followed, the events in this small community grew to become far more than a simple ghost story. They became the starting point for a new mass movement referred to as modern spiritualism that influenced tens of thousands of people for the remainder of the nineteenth century. Spiritualism, in a variety of forms became one of the largest popular movements of the time, and continues to attract believers to this day.
