The Other Side, Part 31

I thanked Jacob for talking with me, and he said it was his pleasure.

I told him, if he would touch my Symbol, he would go there.  He touched the Symbol, and he was gone.

Spirit Guide asked if there were others Jacob had wanted to take with him. I told her no one else was indicated.

She then asked about the dead out on the field. We looked out over the field, back toward the Confederate lines to the west, and there were bodies lying all over the field.

Spirit Guide asked if I could help them also.  I didn’t know if I could really help all of them. I raised my Symbol up, and the Confederate dead began to get up.

One Reb said, “Hello Jake,” to another soldier.

Quickly they formed into a few companies.  I didn’t try to count them.  I had never done this before, and I didn’t know if I could do it.

The Confederate Battle Flag was waving and I said in a loud voice, “Men, we thank you for your service and duty. Your country appreciates what you did. Your sojourn is over and you can go now.

“Go in peace. “

I held up my Symbol, and they began to disappear.  In a few seconds the field was clear of all the dead.

ASG 2 began to prance around the field in elation that they had been released. ASG 1 wagged her tail, and we both just watched ASG 2 continue his prancing gait as he circled the field.

Spirit Guide said it was okay to end our session for today.

ASG 2 had finished his prance of joy and came to me. I asked his permission to ride home. He allowed me to get on his back, and we were immediately in front of the East Woods again.

About Civil War Reflections

Vernon has been a Civil War buff since childhood, but had been inactive in Civil War history for over two decades. However, in the early 1990s his interest was rekindled after watching Ken Burns’ “Civil War Documentary” on PBS. He particularly became interested in the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) and decided to learn more about this epic struggle.
