We’re Still Here is a fascinating look at what life was like in the earliest days in Charlestown leading up to the Battle of Bunker Hill. Authentic spirits of residents, shopkeepers and politicians, along with patriot and British soldiers, share intimate details about the chaos they witnessed. Hear little known facts and long forgotten history. All the historical information provided by the spirits of Charlestown has been extensively researched and verified.
The first two historical sites of the five we investigated are documented in the photos and graphics below.
This is the very first site we investigated. One of the most significant colonial archeological dig sites in the United States.
The first site we investigated was the original home of Governor John Winthrop after he arrived here from England, by way of Salem, in 1630. Later, it became The Three Cranes Tavern, an operating tavern for 140 years, and the hub for hearing the latest information leading up the the Battle of Bunker Hill. I sat in the middle of the foundation stones with my tape recorder hoping I would receive spirit communication and residual energy lingering from the past. (Residual energy is an imprint of images, sounds, smells or feelings from intense events.) I was not disappointed. The first communication was from slave girls working in The Three Cranes Tavern.
John Harvard Mall, Charlestown, MA
Here I received energetic impressions and spirit communication describing a military field hospital where they cared for wounded soldiers leading up to the battle. The First Church of Charlestown was located in this area. Dr. Isaac Foster, who George Washington named as the temporary Director of the Hospital Department for the Continental Army lived one block away. Another spirit communicated with us about Major General Dr. Joseph Warren as he gave a speech to the townspeople. Dr. Warren was the fallen hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
" One thing I’m very clear about is that the spirits I’ve encountered throughout this project want their stories to be told, and they wish us to be more thorough and accurate when we talk about the history of Charlestown. I also believe, for them, by telling their story– it’s a chance for healing. When a spirit takes their truth to the grave, this aspect of their soul’s journey in this lifetime is incomplete. Giving spirits a voice so they can express what they witnessed can be healing for them and for others who hear their story. After all, it was not omnipotent all-knowing gods who wrote history. Mere mortal men and women wrote about history to the best of their imperfect ability to be all-inclusive. There are many more stories that need telling.”
