Over the years since the Civil War battle in Gettysburg, stories of ghostly sightings, stranger than reality, have emerged from the houses and fields in and around the town. Stories of sightings of soldiers, moving again in battle lines, across the fields where they once marched. . .and died; tales of visions through a rip in time into the horrible scene of a Civil War hospital; whispers of a look at men long dead held eternally captive by duty. These apparitions–and more–come back to remind us, in one way or another that they are not to be forgotten for what they did in Gettysburg.

  • Over the years since the Civil War battle in Gettysburg, stories of ghostly sightings, stranger than reality, have emerged from the houses and fields in and around the town. Stories of sightings of soldiers, moving again in battle lines, across the fields where they once marched. . .and died; tales of visions through a rip in time into the horrible scene of a Civil War hospital; whispers of a look at men long dead held eternally captive by duty. These apparitions–and more–come back to remind us, in one way or another that they are not to be forgotten for what they did in Gettysburg. Author Mark Nesbitt first heard stories of ghostly sightings and sounds when he was working as a park ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park during the 1970s. Following interviews with other rangers, visitors and employees at Gettysburg College, Nesbitt compiled and published Ghosts of Gettysburg in 1991. Following its success, Nesbitt has since released: * Nesbitt, Mark (2012). Ghosts of Gettysburg: Spirits, Apparitions and Haunted Places of the Battlefield. 2. Second Chance Publications. ISBN 978-0-9752836-8-4. * Nesbitt, Mark (2014). Ghosts of Gettysburg: Spirits, Apparitions and Haunted Places of the Battlefield. 3. Second Chance Publications.
