This story is so strange that my own mom has a hard time believing it. I was about 14, and lived on the second floor of an apartment building. One night my mom, my friend and I were sitting on the couch watching tv. What looked like a red laser light started moving around on our wall, my mom freaked out thinking that someone was pointing a gun inside our house or something. She turned off all of the lights and went into her bedroom to look out the window.
My friend and I stood in the dark living room wondering what was going on. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something white. I turned to look, and I saw a glowing white shadow of a man. He was a shadow, but I could clearly see his features. He was dressed as a revolutionary war soldier (I looked it up years later). He wore a long coat, boots, a 3 point hat and his uniform had a large "x" on it. He was walking in slow motion on my balcony, staring straight forward. I was too afraid to move, I assumed that my friend was also watching because she wasn't moving or saying anything either. I watched him walk through the banister, and out of sight.
I asked my friend, "did you see that?" To which she replied, "see what?" My heart sunk. I knew at that moment that no one would probably believe me...
I later found out that some men that served in the revolutionary war lived out the rest of their lives near my home and are buried nearby. Has anyone else seen anything remotely similar? I'm wondering if he was just passing by, because I never saw him again.
