The Confederate Soldier at Thompson Island Bridge

This is a haunting that seems to come and go – appearing only when America is at war. According to locals in San Marcos, Texas, the bridge is guarded by a uniformed Confederate soldier in full battle dress, rifle slung across his shoulder. It is said that the soldier made a promise to his brother who had a home on the creek near the bridge that when the war was over, he’d come home – no matter what. Maybe he did. Maybe not.
