Haunted Gettysburg

The little town in Pennsylvania that hosted a major battle in 1863 is known to some as haunted Gettysburg.

Even as the battle unfolded soldiers were said to have seen ghostly apparitions. Members of the 20th Maine claimed to see a ghostly man on a horse dressed with 100 year-old clothing who showed them the way to the Gettysburg battlefield at a fork in the road.

There is another ghost of Gettysburg believed to be haunting the cupola at Pennsylvania Hall at Gettysburg College. The "sentry" is said to pace the tower, apparently on lookout and even points his gun at students walking on the ground.

There may be reason to suggest that the Tillie Pierce house in the City of Gettysburg is haunted by none other than Tillie herself. One may choose to go on a Gettysburg ghost tour to learn more about the spiritual hot spots in and around the town and with additional Gettysburg hauntings to learn about.
