of Peter Dromgoole

(includes tax & shipping)

Dromgoole, Twice-Murdered, E. T. Malone, Jr.’s book revealing the true fate of Peter Pelham Dromgoole, is the ideal gift for any University of North Carolina grad or fan. The first printing was so popular that it completely Sold Out! The book's second printing is now over half sold! While they last, order one for yourself or your favorite UNC fan.

Dromgoole’s mysterious disappearance in 1833 from the UNC campus in Chapel Hill created a legend that he had been killed in a midnight duel on Piney Prospect. Inspired by this tale, a secret society, the Order of Gimghoul, constructed massive Gimghoul Castle on the spot in 1925.

The legend, repeated to every generation of Carolina students, has inspired poems, short stories, and novels, plus reams of newspaper, radio, television, and internet features.

Now, after years of research, UNC alumnus Malone has pulled together the three threads of folklore, literary influences, and true-life murder mystery. Chock full of curious details never before collected, this new 288-page book from Literary Lantern Press will be sure to delight any true Tar Heel.

The scene shifts from Chapel Hill to St. Augustine, Florida, during the Second Seminole War, as the tentacles of the legend reach out to touch Edgar Allan Poe, Thomas Wolfe, millionaire industrialist Henry Flagler, and perhaps even Harry Potter!
