    1. I was a full-time employee at the fort during the summer season of 1985. At the time the male tour guides did a living history presentation and gave guided tours in character of soldiers garrisoned at the fort as in the year 1864. We were authentically uniformed and outfitted as Union soldiers from that time period. One afternoon myself and another tour guide went up to the third floor of the original barracks building, which was usually inaccessible to everyone (someone had inadvertently left a door unlocked to a stairwell). As we walked around, suddenly just a few feet away from us a door started to open by itself on its old creaky hinges. As we were gawking at if for a second or two the door suddenly slammed shut with a violent thud. Before we could say a word to each other we just bolted back down the stairs as fast as we could. I never had any interest to go back up there the rest of the summer…

    2. Late 1981: This was in a room in the Fort where uniforms were stored. I was waiting for a friend to complete his work, which was only going to take an hour or so. I feel asleep on a cot, in the uniform room and awoke to someone whispering my name in my ear. I could feel the breath against my skin.
