The Ghosts of Gettysburg
|The Battle Of
Virginia of 75,000 men and the 97,000 man Union Army Of
The Potomac under General George G. Meade met, by
chance, when a Confederate brigade sent forward for
supplies observed a forward column of Meade's cavalry.
Of the more than 2,000 land engagements of the Civil War,
Gettysburg ranks supreme. Although the Battle of Gettysburg
did not end the war, nor did it attain any major war aim for the
North or the South, it remains the great battle of the war.
Here at Gettysburg on July 1, 2, and 3, 1863, more men
actually fought and more men died than in any other battle
before or since on North American soil.

reenactment of the Battle Of Gettysburg. This was in
celebration of the 125th. Anniversary of the Battle. He recalls
a clear night in July under a full moon. The time was around
11:00pm. He sat with a group of people on a ridge that
overlooked the original battlefield. A fog appeared across the
field and they could hear clinking noises coming from where
the fog was. None of them had any idea what was happening.
The following day and days that passed he and the others
were told the story of the fog and how it had appeared to
others and how the noise was believed to be the ghosts of
the soldiers moving across the field and the clinking noise to
be the bayonets clicking together because they were
marching so closely . At the time of the sighting he had not
yet become fully involved in paranormal research. His
comment now is, "Where was my camera?"
This is one such story of Gettysburg and there are many out
