    1. I snapped a pic of what looks like a ghost of some kind at Thayer’s Approach tunnel. The dark end of the tunnel shows the ghost if you blow it up.

      The Siege of Vicksburg Battlefield

      After arriving in Vicksburg, Mississippi and checking in at my hotel, I decided to on a tour of the Battlefield.
      I paid my $12.00 and drove through the gates. On either side of me were statues, plaques and engraved stones
      with names, dates, ranks and other important data. I was behind Union lines.
      As I was driving slowly through the park, I came to a Civil War canon. I decided to get out of the car and get some photos of it.
      It was just outside a thicket of trees and brush aiming towards enemy lines. After turning on m camera, I looked up at the thicket of trees…and froze! There, just to my right few yards away was a Union Soldier. He was wearing blue and carried a rifle….
      and I could see right through him! He took a step and vanished! He did not seem to be aware of me. I am pretty sure it was a residual ghost.
      I dictated all the facts into my iPhone because I couldn’t get online last night.
      This is the first battlefield ghost I have ever seen as well as my first residual ghost.

    3. We stopped by and did a quick tour on our way back to Texas and took pictures and saw what looks like an apparition/mist floating above or in front of a tree. Nothing else like that in the rest of the picture. Also saw a quick flash of similar white mass to the right side f the Shirley House, no way it could have been a person or car because it is a drop on that side. Immediately had chills all over my body and it was close to or over 90 degrees outside.

    4. My family was driving along the road in the military park and I happen to take this picture from the road at a distance. When I got home I downloaded my camera pics on my laptop and looked through all the pictures carefully. I happened to notice something in the window and enlarged my photo and saw someone in the picture!

    5. If you look at the bottom right part of the window, there is an apparition of a young soldier boy. It looks like he is wearing hat and a long sleeve white shirt.
