This one-hour documentary traces prominent paranormal events in America from the 1800's to present day...it is a hidden history that most people never read about in our history books.
It is a history that never shows up in the books--certainly not the ones taught in school. But with the recent explosion of belief in "New Age" phenomena, it is important to understand that many of these things aren't "new" at all.
AMERICA'S PSYCHIC PAST is a fascinating exploration of little-known chapters of history, disregarded by the cast majority of scholars in favor of more acceptable tales. It ventures from the 18th century to the present day, investigating such paranormal themes as ESP, the afterlife and more. Filled with fascinating interviews with renowned experts, scientists and skeptics, as well as compelling archival material, the program presents a view of our past never seen before, populated with some of the nation's most famous figures.
From Thomas Edison's attempts to prove the existence of the afterlife to the CIA's investigations of psychic warfare, HISTORY'S MYSTERIES™ presents a fascinating portrait of AMERICA'S PSYCHIC PAST.
