    Johnny: Aye! And just one of the many you slew … and now … in the name of all that is holy … We make you our prisoner!
    P7 – Wooter: Bah! Fool lads! Ragtag farmers! Do you think only you died on Hamlet Mountain? Do you not suppose that British soldiers sleep here as well?

    This assumes a lot about life after death, like we keep the same bodies, the same clothes and even our weapons in the afterlife if we died in battle. It’s kind of hard to imagine a ghost rifle though, and they’re already dead; but continue with the fantasy. I want to see Wooten Van Wooten the First exposed for the traitor he really was. (Of course, if the British had won, he probably would have been knighted by the king, or even given a peerage. To the victor goes the spoils)

    this is really silly, and makes no sense whatever, but kinda fun

    Ever see “The Frighteners” with Michael J. Fox &Chi McBride? I liked the mythos they created with the portals that open up to a place of light or down into a place of red darkness. Nice movie.

    Billdi this makes perfect sense. It helps if you understood history, lore of ghosts and story telling in general.

    I like the surreal nature of this story. But then look up hauntings where old battles seem to be continuously fought long after their end by phantom soldiers and some can even see flashes of light and hear booms during them!

    It’s as though the battleground remembers the battle and is re-playing it. And sometimes the people can hear it.
    .
    I felt the pain, the loss of life and/or limb, the mourning that went on when my hubby and I visited the Gettysburg battle fields. It was a beautiful day, but the field remember the misery and I felt it so very deeply.
    .
    I also remember feeling the pain of the visitors to the Vietman War memorial in DC, but not the dead there. and I’ve felt the overwhelming anguish at funerals for people I didn’t even know.
    .
    Does that make me an empath? I have felt other people’s other feelings, but only when very strong.
