Place Memories or Imprints
Some time ago an example of a place haunting was mentioned.Someone asked about it,and thought they had experienced it at a Gettysburg Battlefield.I have read about one man a former Army Officer now retired who had experienced a similar occurrence there.
Briefly the terms to explain these are called Place Hauntings,Place Memories,oe Imprints.It is thought that events transpired in the specific area that were so profoundly strong in emotion evoked that the energy remains.An extremely intense concentration of dramatic events and feelings are generated within this area which may affect anyone passing through the area.Those who in this way see the visions and /or experience the emotions contribute this to the situation thus strengthening it.
One area in Northern California,Pacheco Pass is noted for this imprint..A variety of images,sounds and smells have been reported when crossing through this area.Covered wagons burning,Indians being beaten when chained or circling wildly on horseback;Spanish soldiers gathered around a hanging corpse and sometimes Mexicans and Americans in bloody mortal hand to hand combat.
Not a fun place to visit...
