In the summer of 2001 I worked as a camp counselor on Rose Dhu Island. The other camp counselors thought it would be funny to scare the girls by having me jump out on the trail during a night hike. It just so happened that the trail they wanted to walk the girls down was right through a part of the island where you could still see the trenches dug by Confederate troops. Rather than crouching down in the weeds for who knows how long, I decided I would sit in the dark by one of the log cabins waiting for the lights of the flashlights further down the wooded trail. It felt like I had waited there for hours, but it was probably no more than an hour in total. It was then that I saw a faint light coming up the secluded path. I got closer to the woods out of the open area and hid like I was supposed to. The closer the light got, the more I realized something was amiss.
First of all it was not a flashlight. I was seeing what looked like a lamp. I have seen electric lamps, and this did not look like an electric lamp. As the people got closer it became apparent that these were absolutely not girl scouts. Even right after the event had happened I professed that they were dark male figures walking towards me. I could not make any more of them out than that, but it was enough that I jumped out of the bushes and ran for my life back to the main building. I could hear people chasing me. At one point I even fell down which scared me to death because I fell at the edge of a field where I would be very visible in the moonlight. Gratefully the field was not far from the main building. I got there shaking and scared at what I had seen. We all decided it must have been people who came by boat (because the main road onto the island has a gate on it that you cannot pass through) to steal the crabs caught in our traps. However, I never understood why these grown men would have such an old-fashioned lamp rather than just using a more efficient electric one that can easily be picked up at any camping store nearby.
I wonder if they were a group of fishermen who chased me down in an attempt at not being caught, or they were a group of Confederates still ready and waiting to fight for their cause. When I calmed down the counselors informed me that they had chosen to take a different path and just assumed I had walked back when they did not show. They were not even on that part of the island that night, and no one was staying in those cabins that week. They were actually starting to get a little bit worried when I was not coming back because I was out there alone with no flashlight.

I had two experiences within three months of each other at a hotel at the Savannah airport. These were frightening experiences, does anyone know of any violent deaths occurring at this hotel or if the property is built on burial grounds? J.
