On Saturday, May 24, we visited Shiloh National Military Park. This was not a “ghost hunting” trip; it was just a day trip we took one day while camping out at Pickwick Dam.

We walked around parts of the park and I took a few photographs. When I started snapping around the Bloody Pond, I found one photo with a few odd things. Although I took 24 photos around the pond, only this one photo contained something unexplainable.

This is the white whatever it is in the tree. I do not claim to know what it is but the following is what I found on another website:

On the battlefield, there is a pond known as “The Bloody Pond” where many injured and dying soldiers went to cool their thirst during the heat of the day, during the Battle of Shiloh. It is said that, on certain days, when the sun hits just right, the water looks blood red; Just as it did during that battle. There is also the ghost of a woman in a white dress, possibly the wife of one of the soldiers or officers that helped nurse the men. She appears to women and children who become lost and become saddened or frightened by the battlefield. She is a helpful spirit who tries to calm and soothe those who are in need of comfort or help, but quickly disappears when someone else comes upon her and the person she is trying to help.

This is the smaller white spot in the tree.

Can you see the figure in the woods?

If you would like to be emailed the original, full sized digital photo, email tnhauntings@writersbeacon.com.
