We were living on Arrowhead Road at the time. I was woken up around 2:00 am the first time to the sound of what I could only describe as war drums, Native American drums. It sounded like it was far off. I lay in bed thinking of what it could be. A high school was down the road, but they would not be practicing at 2:00 am. It did not sound like someone with the bass to their music cranked up driving through the housing area. I woke up my husband to see if he could hear it. He did, but he said it was probably just someone with their music up loud. I put it out of my mind until about two weeks later when I heard it again. Only this time my husband was awake too, and he heard it. He said it sounded like war drums. I did not tell him that was what I thought until he told me. It sounded so far away, but you could definitely make out each time the drum was hit.
The next morning I got up with my son to get him ready for school. I was outside watching the bus pick him up when my neighbor came out, and we talked for a minute. She asked me if I heard someone beating on a drum last night around 1:00 am. I said ''you heard it too?'' I was so glad that someone other than me and my husband heard it. She said ''yeah, and it sounded far off like it was quite far away from us. '' About a week after we heard the drums for the last time some Native American graves were discovered on the other side of post when earth was being moved in order to start new construction. Now there have been battles waged on Fort Benning property during the Civil War and probably some of the revolutionary war as well. It is also a huge area where the Cherokee once lived. I do not know what to think to this day, but at least I was not the only one who experienced it.

We lived in Custer Terrace. One night my little boy jumped into bed with me, and I told him ''you are too old to be sleeping with me. I have a Parent-Teacher Conference in the morning, and you have to quit waking me up! '' I picked up my little boy and carried him back to his room. When I walked in the room was ice cold, and I felt the most evil presence. I had never felt that way before, but when it is present, you know it is just evil! We ran back to my room and jump in the bed! I could not see it, but I could feel it all around me! My little boy was shaking and too scared to cry! I did not know what to do, so I just prayed out loud! My little boy started to scream ''shut up mommy you're making it worse. Shut up!'' He had never spoken like that to me before! It felt as though it was going right through me, and I was terrified! I could literally feel the separation between my spirit and my body! I started cussing at it, and it went away. I could hear it in the rafters like wood moving!
I thought I might have imagined the whole thing, but after talking to the neighbor, she said she had a similar experience! So I went to visit the chaplain. The priest came to our place and placed holy water over every entrance and window. We did not have any more problems. Four years later we moved to another place on Arrowhead Road. Besides the constant bad dreams I had whenever my husband was not home and the eerie sensations of being watched, the big one came when we were all home. We had been barbecuing in the backyard. I was in the kitchen when my daughter came running in saying ''mommy there is a mean man bothering me. '' I went outside to check it out, and there was no one there. She came in again, and she went to play in her room. My husband joined me in the kitchen. My dogs' ears stood up, and we heard the back screen door knob turn, the door opened and slammed shut! My husband took off outside trying to find what just went out or came in. We were totally freaked! I later asked my daughter what this mean man looked like. She responded ''he had boots and a funny hat.''.
