“I never intended to be a ghost hunter. I moved to Carlisle Pa, when I took a job at Harrisburg Community College. Carlisle is 27 miles from Gettysburg. My wife befriended a woman who worked in a Civil War dress shop whose husband was a licensed Civil War Battlefield Guide. Anyway my wife kept hearing these fantastic ghost stories and seeing ghost photos. Determined to debunk these stories, we set out on our own to “hunt ghosts”
“The first place we went was an area known as Doc’s Rock. It is just passed the Wheatfield, across the road from the Irish Brigade monument. It was the site of the 1st Field Hospital. There we have heard pigs, volleys of musket fire, and photographed lots of orbs. Like the one in the above photo.
“These orbs were captured over the Wheatfield. Picture taken from Doc’s Rock.”
“We then concentrated on Doc’s Rock. In this photo notice how the dark blue orb has moved from the base of the tree!”
“From there we went to Devil’s Den.”
“Devil’s Den was very active. Lots of small orbs!”
“And a blue rod that moved!”
Wow! There are some truly amazing photos, Rick. I’ve not been to Gettysburg myself, but I hear it is a very haunted place. No wonder. During the three day Battle of Gettysburg more Americans were killed than in the entire Vietnam War. Thank you for sharing.
