My name is Jon and I'm an Active duty service member serving my 13th year in the military. Anyway, when I was stationed in DC I lived out in Fredericksburg, Va. Just outside our neighborhood there was an old burned down Civil War era mansion. The name of it is the Idlewild mansion and it was rumored that GEN Robert E. Lee held it as a temporary Headquarters for a few days in preparation for the Battle of Chancellorsville.
I have a brother-in-law that's really into all the Civil War battlefields and pretty much anything to do with the Civil War. So he and my sister came to visit us for Thanksgiving one year. I told him about the old mansion and we decided to go take a look at it. The whole place was fenced off but that didn't keep our curious minds from crawling in to take a peek. I looked inside what appeared to be a guest house and snapped this picture from my phone. I don't really have any dramatic story to tell with this pic. I didn't physically see whatever this is. It was just in the photo. Sir, I must tell you that i'm definitely a skeptical person when it comes to these kinds of things. I don't jump to conclusions. As I stated above i've spent many years in the military and seen a lot of things that i've been able to explain away. To me, this photo looks like an orb and inside the orb, it looks like a face. For some reason you can see the face better on my phone. It looks like a bearded man. Maybe it has something to do with the screen resolution. Please let me know what you think. Thanks for your time,
