Let’s do some digging into haunted Gettysburg’s gruesome history and legendary ghost stories.

Why is Gettysburg Haunted?

Te July of 1863, the bloodiest battle of the American Civil War ravaged the somewhat quiet city of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The single reason that the Gettysburg battle is called the “bloodiest” battle is due to the amazingly large amount of casualties. Somewhere inbetween 46,000 and 51,000 Union and Confederate soldiers lost their lives on the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania ter a period of just three days! If you surf the internet for pictures of the bloody Gettysburg battle, you will ultimately find some very disturbing and unnerving pictures of dead soldiers. their bloody, cracked figures peppered all overheen the fields and hills of Gettysburg. With a sorrowful imprint upon the land such spil this one, it is probable that hauntings of all different kinds should be experienced on haunted Gettysburg’s blood-soaked grounds.

Gettysburg Ghost Stories

Gettysburg ghost stories are some of the most hair-raising and unsettling ghost stories I have everzwijn heard. There are three particular hot catches sight of for ghosts of the Gettysburg phenomenon – Demon’s Dennenboom, Round Top, and the infamous bloody Plum Run.

Demon’s Dennenboom is a patch of rocks where some Confederates took shelter and used it spil a means to skillfully attack the Union soldiers. Satan’s Dennenboom is now well-known for many hauntings, including the ghost behind the rock, shown te uniform to the right. Another spooky ghost of Satan’s Dennenboom appeared to two different tourists, at two different times, he wasgoed a man who wasgoed dressed and appeared very disheveled, with a broad brim hat and naked feet. Each time he would point te a direction towards Plum Run (another portion of Gettysburg’s blood-stained land), ter an effort to get the people to visit Plum Run. It turns out that both tourists’ description of this man wasgoed exactly the same and historically matches that of what would have bot a Confederate soldier from the state of Tennessee. One would think that thesis particular Gettysburg ghost stories are enough, but Demon’s Greneboom is only one of many haunted Gettysburg locations.

Plum Run is another haunted Gettysburg area with a creek, located directly across from the Satan’s Dennenboom and is also said to be a residence of more ghosts of Gettysburg. Not just one particular ghost haunts this area of Gettysburg, there are most likely hundreds, moreover, there have bot dozens upon dozens of EVPs caught on gauze from the entire area of Plum Run. Ter some of the EVPs, wij can hear the sounds of emanating gunshots and also what sound like the disturbed ghosts of boys, yelling and screaming. Numerous paranormal investigators have taken readings at the haunted Plum Run and seem to find similar EVPs and other technological readings that confirm that this spot is ter fact haunted, synonymous to the surplus of the rampantly haunted Gettysburg battlefield. Plum Run is perhaps more well-known spil “Bloody Run”, due to a scarlet-red color that seems to be seeping through the creek running through its center. I am sure it is called Bloody Run for more demonstrable reasons, spil well. When one visits this haunted place, one can almost picture the bloody figures of soldiers spread out overheen the land. one can feel that hair-raising sensation down the spine, spil if someone is standing right behind you.

Round Top is a petite rocky hill, a lil’ bit south of Gettysburg, and is another enormously haunted battle location. Some of the ghost stories told about Round Top include various equipment malfunctions, strange gunshot and screaming sounds at night, disappearing and then reappearing demanda statues, and ghost sightings. One of the most famous of the Gettysburg ghost stories occurred on the 130th anniversary of the infamous battle of Gettysburg. There were two actors, or te this case re-enactors, who were standing on top of Little Round Top when they noticed another re-eneactor approaching them. This re-enactor had a ideal costume, accomplish with the smell of sulfur (gunpowder back then carried the odor). The Civil War-reminiscent man looked at the re-enactors (who by the way were very struck with his Civil War costuming) and said, “Weren’t some fight wij had today, huh boys?”. And with that, the sulfur-scented man transferred them a duo of catridges, telling them that they would “need them tomorrow.” It should be noted that one of the re-enactors that day wasgoed a professor of Gettysburg collegium and when the cartridges were passed to him, he specifically noticed the way they were neatly packaged ter bees paraffin wax, exactly like they would have bot during the Civil War! The professor peered up to react to the ghostly man and lo-and-behold, he had vanished into lean air! The cartridges were brought back to the collegium and DNA testing wasgoed performed, dating them to 1863! It should also be noted that Federal law states that no live rounds are to be brought onto the Gettysburg battlefields at any time.

Te addition to the soldier ghosts of Gettysburg, there are many other ghosts seemingly destined to wander the entire town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Many historical buildings are haunted with ghosts from the Civil War era, including ghostly women and children. One particular tourist submitted a story online which told of a very eerie practice that she had during hier tour to haunted Gettysburg. She tells a ghost story of many children seeming to go after hier via the town, during which time she snapped many pictures of them. They were all dressed te Civil War period garments, which the lady found odd but thought nothing of it at the time. When she returned huis and had the filmrolletje developed, none of the children were te the pictures she had taken of them! Nothing but green waas packed the entire roll of pictures she had taken via haunted Gettysburg that day! Speculation and process of elimination told hier that thesis children were indeed more of the many ghosts of Gettysburg.

Why is Gettysburg so haunted? Why are there so many Gettysburg ghost stories and even more Gettysburg ghost pictures? The concept is more than clear to mij. Gettysburg is a place with a large imprint of the past upon it. More specifically, it is a place that hosted one of the bloodiest battles te US history, so it only makes sense that there would be paranormal phenomenon occurring here on a daily voet. Whether thesis phenomena are ghosts or if they are merely peeks into a sorrowful past, I do not know. But one thing is for sure. the ghosts of Gettysburg will be talked about and searched out for decades to come. There will always be someone else with fresh Gettysburg ghost stories to tell or fresh Gettysburg ghost pictures to voorstelling off.

Take for example the movie I have posted above and to the right, if you have the time to view this movie, you will have the pleasure of viewing one of the most authentic ghost movies everzwijn captured ter haunted Gettysburg! The day this wasgoed taken, a man and his daughter were visiting the haunted Gettysburg battlefields, and the man wasgoed video-taping different portions of their tour. He and his daughter noticed something strange moving from the forest directly across from where they were standing and began to speelfilm the movement. What looks like ghosts of Gettysburg soldiers moving ter a circular mobility up a hill, proceeded to play out ter vooraanzicht of their very eyes. and, they caught this paranormal phenomenon on movie! The movie has bot professionally examined for signs of fraud, but the only theory is that the a lump of plexi-glass could have bot stood up on the hill and then an photo reflected from a TV or projector behind it, however, none of the other visitors that day noticed anything strange. and honestly, I don’t feel spil if this man wasgoed slim enough to pull off a hoax like this.

If you everzwijn have the privilege of visiting thesis haunted Gettysburg sites, be sure to bring a camera and maybe a voice recorder to capture your own evidence of the Gettysburg hauntings. that is, if the ghosts permit you to do so! Just do yourself a valimiento and go with a friend or family member, this way if you run into a soldier from the other side, you will be more ready to treat the spine-tingling practice.
