Wow... Haven't been on here in forever! I apologize for the wait of this story. I've been really busy these past few months, and I've forgotten my duty to post my experiences! Again, very sorry. If you haven't read my stories, "I Think They Wanted My Help" or "Haunted Hotel Room at Best Western," please do. This story will make much more sense. Read them in that order, then come back to this one.
My family and I were on vacation in Gettysburg, and we had heard about the Jenny Wade house from people in town. They said it was haunted. One man that used to give tours in the house said that he had experienced a lot of things, from touches to seeing and apparition of a little boy on the stairs. Anyway, so we decided we would go take a tour.
Basically, the story goes that a lady named Jenny Wade was in her house cooking breakfast, when she was shot and killed. (on accident) If I remember correctly, it was during the battle of Gettysburg, not just a shooting or whatever. So, Jenny died and people claim that she haunts the house now. But it's not just her. There are other spirits that inhabit the house. Long story short.
We had finished our tour, and were down in the basement. Two elderly couples were down with us in the basement, and they were NOT afraid of the paranormal. Let me tell you, the had an EMF detector and everything. It's like they were ghost hunters. It was only us down there, and these grandmas and grandpas were ready to find the ghosts. Sadly, I had had just about enough of ghosts, with the whole hotel incident.
While everybody was on the other side of the basement, looking at this whole ghost section for the house, I was on the other side sitting on a bench. I was bored, and was blowing my bangs out of my face, when I noticed the chain blocking off an area moving. I rolled my eyes and walked up to it. Yep, it was moving, for sure. I squatted and stared at it. It just kept on swinging, and not just a little. It was moving a good bit. Now think about this, the chain is coming out of a brick wall. So something had to be moving it with his/her hands.
I called my mom back into the room, along with the elderly people. All of a sudden, one of the grandmas goes, "Whoa, did you see that?" Her friend turns to her and replies, "Yeah! It looked like this orange streak of light or something!" Now, I had heard of these, but I had only heard of catching them in pictures. These ladies had actually saw them with the naked eye. I was like, "Dude, that's so cool, why can't I see some?" But of course, I didn't get to see any. Meanwhile, while this was happening, the chain was still a-swingin'.
That's pretty much what happened in the Jenny Wade house, nothin' special. Just thought I would share. Hope you enjoyed. I also had an experience in my house that happened a couple of days ago, and it will be coming soon. And not 2 months later this time! I promise!;)
