As Washington was at Valley Forge during a bitter Pennsylvania winter, he was pondering whether to just give up. His men were starving. Their clothes were tattered and many didn't even have shoes. Cold and disease was taking a huge toll on his men. These links are close to what the book says happened except in the second part of the vision, it doesn't mention the Pacific Ocean. It just says Washington said he could see towns and lights as far as he could see.
The second thing I want to post is Washington's appearance to the men of the 20th Maine under Joshua Chamberlain at the battle of Gettysburg. He was seen twice, once to lead them to the battlefield and once to lead them in a suicidal charge that would turn the battle that would turn the tide of the war and ultimately preserve the Union.
I'll post more as I read on but would like to hear your comments on these topics. I'm not going to post every sighting of a spirit as there has been many reported but only what I find to be interesting to discuss.
