It was quite simple really, where I live in MD is on what was once the grounds of an estate owned by John Hanson. The area is in Edgewood and I rent a small one bedroom little abode on this land once owned by this man.
Anyway, I was in my kitchen doing dishes and I felt someone there. I looked up and I was looking into the face of a man who had what appeared to be a reddish beard, a short one and was dressed in Civil war attire, slightly balding and a little chunky in the face.
I reacted scared as well as he did, but I saw his sword, rifle and even the buttons on the uniform, it was a lighter blue color uniform. I think he was on the North's side.
The uniform was what looked to me like a felt type of material, a little rough maybe. He appeared to be in his early to mid 30's.
What was so interesting was what happened next. I felt the hairs on my neck stand up and never experienced such a thing. My bathroom light was off and yet as he seemed to fade away quickly turning fuzzy and my light in my bathroom turned from a dark bulb to a white electric bright and poof, the light was burnt out.
I have lived here going on 7 years and once in awhile a door will shut or a window. Right before it rained on two occasions I was outside and went in to shut them and they were already shut and locked. I know I did not shut them. I live alone so that was odd and being woken up late at night by noises, is more than odd. Kind of strange, especially when you hear someone breathing but you realize it's not you.
Still yet somehow I was woken many a night by a noise and a "feeling" of being watched... In the dark, it's eerie. I like living here and IF something was here, I don't think it may mean any harm. It may simply be a sort of energy residue. I think it's just that, energy trapped until it runs out, sometimes it may stay on for eons, who knows? I am sure of this one thing, someone out there in our wild world, knows the REAL truth of how "things" work and are. "That which you create will seek your destruction..." who said that?
