If you go to the Georgetown University Campus late at night there's this on-campus cemetery where old professors are buried. I have seen flashes of people in old day clothing there many times. I haven't told anybody about this because I am afraid I would lose all my credibility.

On July 11 1864 Confederate cannons fired into Washington DC from their position at Jackson Lane and the Washington-rockville pike (now Bradley Boulevard and Wisconsin Avenue) as 20 000 Confederate troops advanced on Union defenses along Rock Creek and down seventh Street (Georgia Avenue).
In the midst of the cannon fire gun shots and rebel yells a young man fell in love. His ghost can still be seen today seeking one more glimpse of the woman he never spoke to but came to love so dearly that it cost him his life.
