The Civil War Soldiers Who Glowed and the Possible Implications!

During the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, 3000 soldiers died and 16,000 were wounded. Soldiers often succumbed to the worst of deaths, bacterial. They marched on, in spite of wounds in horrible conditions and weakened immune systems, unable to fight these bacteria. 

While waiting in the mud, awaiting medics for sometimes up to two days, soldiers noted something odd when dusk began; some of their wounds began to glow. Even more amazing, when they were moved to a field hospital, those whose wounds glowed, healed more quickly and thoroughly than those who did not. 

Over 100 years later, the question arose; what was happening on that battlefield?

What was discovered was Photorhabadus luminescens, a bacterial that lived in the bellies of parasitic worms. These worms would burrow into an insect larva, vomit up the bacteria that would kill the host and all its microorganisms. When vomited up, the bacteria cast a soft blue glow. The worm would then eat up the bacteria exuded from the host. The soldiers' cool bodies were ideal hosts. The conclusion was that the Photorhabadus luminescens killed off the harmful bacteria in their wounds. 

It would seem that the time of year helped these men to survive the infection, as well. Had it been any colder or hotter, it wouldn't have happened.

I want to take this knowledge a bit further into the para realm. Spook lights/Earth lights.

These nematodes with the luminescent bacteria within, burrow into insect hosts including often caterpillars. This process, in the right time of year and area, might mean that cocoons are embedded with these nematodes (worms) and anyone who has been in the woods during caterpillar season, would know about these large webbings that contain the caterpillars en masse. If these were embedded with the nematodes, you would have a ball of pale blue light in the woods. Sound familiar?

Perhaps we have something in nature that could create such a light. The next question is - what time of year are these lights being seen? 

**Do not miss Monday and Tuesday on GHT. There will be a 2-part report of potential urban Sasquatch in Long Island by expert witness and researcher, Karl Sup.**


  1. Very interesting supposition though, for the ghost light that I've seen, the Thomas Divide Light in North Carolina, the light is most clearly seen in the winter. The light is also at least a couple miles away and I'm not sure it would appear so brightly if it were an organic glow.
