My husband and I drove to the Manassas Battlefield to check it out recently. I took a lot of photos because it was impressive, and for the hope to maybe catch something on film. I came home, looked at the pictures and at first glance nothing caught my eye. But this evening upon looking for the third time I saw something. We looked inside the Henry house that still stands there. It was locked so we just looked in the windows and took pictures from the outside. Look at the bottom two windows carefully. On the left, the lower middle pane, you can see the faint image of a face, two eyes and nose defined. On the right, second pane from the bottom left you can see a face also. It almost appears to be a female face smiling.

  GhostStudy Comments:
According to research, Judith Henry was the first civilian killed at First Bull Run and she died in that house (her house). So, she is a likely candidate for being the ghost that haunts the house to this day. And therefore, most likely being the image (face) we are seeing in the picture. It's also reported that the house was destroyed at some point and restored. So we are actually looking at a restored version of the house. As for the ghost image, It should be noted that window glass is not the best medium for determining a ghostly presence. All forms of glare and reflection should always be considered as well. But what we are seeing here is compelling and worth our consideration.

Judith Henry House - Courtesy Library of Congress
Judith Carter Henry, 84 or 85 years old and bedridden, refused to leave her upstairs bedroom as the First Battle of Bull Run was fought on the hill surrounding her home. Confederate snipers used the house; Judith Henry was killed by a Union bullet meant for the snipers. She was the first civilian killed at First Bull Run, July 21, 1861. The Second Battle of Bull Run was also fought on this hill. (These battles are also sometimes called the First and Second Battles of Manassas.)

On July 21, 1861, the first major battle of the Civil War took place at that location in time
