I am a somewhat new ATS member and hope I am placing this post in the right area.
One of my most memorable moments with Ghosts came when my mother and I had traveled down south back in April of 1995. One of the places we had stopped
to visit was the Shiloh Battlefield in Tennessee. The whole area was well kept and everything was pretty easy to find.
We had quite an experience with Ghosts at the Battlefield. The first was right where the battle had started when a Union Patrol ran into the advancing
Confederates. My mother and I were talking with this couple from England about the fighting over the course of two days. For one reason or another, we
just stopped talking and listened. We heard nothing to start. Then, from a short distance away, we could here the wind rustling through the trees. It
started out low, then seemed to pick up speed. It then swirled all around us before sweeping torwards what became known as 'The Hornets Nest'. The
way it sounded, it was like the souls of all those soldiers who had fought there were fighting the battle all over again just for us. I know it
couldn't have been for more than just a few seconds, but it seemed like a couple of minutes went by before we all said collectively:"Holy S**t".
For the rest of the tour we took, my mother, the English couple , and I, all we could do was talk about how the wind rustling through the trees had
actually sounded like weapons firing and soldiers yelling.
My mother and I talked about that on occasion from then right up until she passed away back in 2005. A shared memory of a bizarre, Ghostly, incident.
