MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Is Elmwood Cemetery haunted by ghosts? Maybe so, maybe no. But it’s certainly haunted by history. And it’s just that vivid, tragic, heroic, bizarre, distinctive Memphis history that, in essence, will rise from its grave this month. It will stalk the marble monuments and granite tombstones of Elmwood in the form of nine what might be called “ghost hosts” — long-dead graveyard, um, tenants, theatrically resurrected in the flesh and in period costumes to share stories of women’s suffrage, racial pride, Yellow Fever, the Civil War, journalism, prostitution and more.
