Prison and Cemetery
August 16, 2003 -
A large team of FPR members investigate Andersonville National
Historic Site. Equipment used included 35 mm cameras, digital
cameras, tape and digital recorders, video cameras, EMF meters,
temperature scanners, and dowsing rods. Weather was hot and humid
with intermittent light showers, and an intense thunderstorm lasting
about an hour.
a reputation of being very haunted. Since the park closes at 5:00
pm, FPR obtained a Special Use Permit allowing us to stay until
10:00 pm. We had access to the entire park, including the prison
site and cemetery.
findings include photographs, esp. near the SW wall of the cemetery
where an apparition of a Union soldier has been reported. Two
different cameras used in rapid succession revealed orbs in the same
location. A third camera shot a mysterious green and white anomaly,
immediately after the first photos were taken.
were also recorded, at different locations throughout the park. One
of the clearest and longest, is "It sure stinks up here",
followed by sounds of coughing.
reported feelings of nausea, heaviness, pushing, and extreme
fatigue. Another experienced the strong odor of excrement.
Dowsing rods were
used in an attempt to communicate with the spirits. Though there is
no way to prove the accuracy of this method, we did seem to be
getting results on two different occasions. One was an 18-year-old
prisoner from New Jersey. He died from dysentery. To our surprise,
he said that the guards did not mistreat him. He did feel like he
was stuck there in Hell, but was also glad to be talking to us.
Another spirit indicated that he was 21 and was shot to death. Both
of these "conversations" took place in the cemetery.
