On our family vacation a few weeks ago we went to a few different historical cities and towns. One of them was Gettysburg.
Jennie Wade was the only civilian killed by direct cause of the battle of Gettysburg, and so of course, her house is said to be haunted. Since I am so in to this kind of thing, my parents decided that going to the midnight tour of the Jennie Wade house would be the perfect thing for the end of vacation since we didn’t go anywhere that I was too excited for.
We were told to tell the tour guide if anything abnormal happened to us while in the house. Needless to say, I failed at doing so. I told her about the cold spot that I felt, I told her about the sound my mother, sister, and I heard, but I didn’t tell her about the shadow that I saw. I wasn’t sure what it was, I assumed that I was playing it up in my mind because that’s what I wanted to see. Then I just thought that it was someone’s shadow, but I was trying to make myself believe that it was a spirit. Now I realize that where I was standing at that point, it wasn’t possible for someone’s shadow to be in that place. How the light was angled the shadows went behind us, no one was in front of me, but the shadow was.
Ever since I saw that shadow weird things have been happening to me. I’m not one to be easily frightened, but right this moment I am terrified.
I’ll be home alone and something will fall over when I’m petting the cat and the dog’s outside. This has happened twice.
At night I’m hearing a thumping that wasn’t there before vacation. It could be the pipes above my room, but they didn’t make any noise before vacation and I live in a new house.
I keep seeing small children out of the corner of my eyes. The Wade house would have children from a nearby orphanage hide under the beds when they were in trouble.
A man, I can feel him touch me.
I’ll be in a room all alone and then faces will appear in a mirror or another reflective surface.
I’ll be in the room, alone or not, and a shadow will come over me. It blocks out the light and it wont go away. I’m sitting in the basement right now, I’m alone, it’s night and there aren’t any windows. It hasn’t happened yet tonight, but following the chain of advents it will happen soon. This happens once, if not more, a day.
I’m terrified. I am absolutely terrified right now. I can’t tell my family, they wouldn’t believe me. Or worse, they might think that I’m going insane, and they might be right. It would be so much easier for me to believe that this is all in my head, my family isn’t in danger, and I’m not sane, then to believe that it’s all real, my family could be in very real danger, and I’m the only one who can do anything about it. I’m thirteen, I’m the baby sister, it’s not my job to be in charge. I don’t know what I can do.
I’ve been trying to work up the courage to try to catch one on camera or to try an EVP with them, but I can’t. I’m fearless in haunted houses where if I catch anything, I know that it’s real but I don’t have to deal with it. Yet if I catch anything in my house, I have to live with it, I have to stay in the house knowing that something is there, maybe able to do harm to us.
Someone just whispered my name behind me and my arm was grabbed a few minutes ago. I’m terrified. I am very religious, and I have a Mary the mother necklace on right now. I’ve prayed to God, to Jesus, to everyone for guidance in what to do, but nothing has happened.
The shadow just came. I’m terrified. Somebody please, just tell me what I can do.
