The Yankee Ghost
As far back as survivors can remember, as long as contact remains between the shattered remnants of Chicago and Northern New England, travelers, messengers and leaders have talked of “the Yankee Ghost”-a tall, slim, tattered fellow who seems to arrive just when he’s needed…and then vanish. Some claim his name is McCutcheon, Whatever he did before the war, McCutcheon was also a volunteer with the Civil Defense Organization…and somehow it was he who managed to survive a trip out into the wasteland to find supplies. His success eventually lead him to travel the roads and trails as a messenger for his organization…but the ever degrading organization of the trail has lead him to become something of a guardian angel of those traversing the long and difficult path east and west.
