I wonder if anyone else has had a similar encounter:

In the mid 90's, my family and some of our friends took a tour of Boston's George's Island. It's an old civil war era fort. I was around 12 at the time. I will never forget what I saw that day.

My friend, her father and I were exploring the old passageways of the fort. We had just turned a corner and all 3 of us stopped suddenly because about 20 feet in front of us was a shadow figure... It was femininely shaped and blacker than black...I don't know if that even makes any sense, but in the dimly lit tunnel, she was darker than the inherent darkness. And she was moving towards us. Needless to say, my friend and I hid behind her father and he quickly ushered us out of there.

A couple years ago I was bored and thinking about my ghostly experiences. I did some research, turns out others had seen her too! The theory is she was the wife of a Confederate POW who had come up from Georgia to find her husband. She wore men's clothing to disguise herself...she arrived at the fort and found her husband imprisoned...she whistled an obscure southern tune through the window and caught his attention. Sadly, was discovered and hanged, but not before requesting females clothes to die in. The only thing they had on the island was a black robe that was fashioned as a dress.

Has anyone else heard of this haunting of George's Island?
