Reddit user Drewb1072 post a haunting photo on Reddit of a ghostly figure standing close to where a Confederate Army Hospital used to stand. Drewb is a Real Estate photographer in the Chattanooga area. Before arriving at the home the homeowner revealed that the house was haunted.
I was photographing a home today in Chattanooga Tn. The homeowner warned me and the realtor before we arrived that her house is “haunted”. She goes on to say that the home was used as an army hospital during the Civil War. Patients were operated on inside the home and then moved to the field out back where most would die after being placed in tents. This photo was taken of the tree’s face, and I didn’t notice the figure behind it until this evening. I walked all around that field photographing it for the seller, and not once did I see that shape by the fence in person, or in any other shots.
There’s a large backyard/ field. Standard chain link fence. Now in my opinion, whatever is captured here is behind that chain link fence (which is around 80-100 yards away) but In front of the neighbour’s side yard fence (roughly 120 yards away).
It is just your average heigh fence. 4 feet maybe? The fact of the matter is, 1) it’s not intentionally faked. I understand you just have to take peoples word for it. 2) I take photos for a living, not of spirits – but of real estate. I would notice if I needed to remove a garbage bag stuck on a fence or a big piece of fabric hung on the fence. There was NOTHING there after the photo was snapped. 3) I joined this group just for this image. The stories I have heard about this property, the number of people who died in that field (according to a photo of the old tombstone, 155 unknown confederate soldiers) and just the fact that nothing else lines up to me. It makes me scratch my head.
