If ghosts exist anywhere in the United States, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is perhaps the right place to look for them.

The rolling green hills where the armies of the Union and Confederacy clashed still seem haunted by the more than 50,000 soldiers who were killed, wounded or went missing in the Battle of Gettysburg.

I remember watching a documentary regarding the ghosts at Gettysburg. One chilling story told of several union re-enactors eating lunch when a man walks up, asks them how things are going where they are fighting, hands the man several bullets, and walks off and disappears. Live ammo had been banned from the site for like 80 years or so. When the re-enactors had the bullets analyzed, they were actual bullets used in the battle.

Chilling!

So a crazy guy walks up in normal clothes, joked around and then gave bullets (Note: No details on the man or the bullets).

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

First, from a temporal standpoint, they were in an open field and the witnesses say that he handed the bullets over to the men, walkedpast them, when they turned around probably not 5 seconds later, he was gone.  Second, obviously you do not use live ammo at a re-enactment so when he handed the bullets over to them and those bullets were analyzed, they were indeed real and from the time period of the civil war. The man appeared to them and his clothes were dirty and ragged. It looked like he hadn't showered in several days. I dunno. People lie but it was interesting nonetheless.

I'm not saying it is true or not. Just what I saw on TV. I have no proof either way, just going by what they said. Problem with ghost stories inherently is the inability to prove that the paranormal exists. You post videos of alleged ghost sightings and immediately people say it's fake.

Demonic spirit's/Fallen Angel's likely have the God-given right to dwell on the battlefield due to all of the bloodshed that went on there.

Maybe America's most haunted location.

...Why would they have this right now?

Battle isn't wordplay.  It's skill and precision.  Get it? I'm better.

I hear and read a hell of a lot about folks experiencing what seems like legit activity on these battle sites, it is fascinating. I know there is a lot of hysteria around publicity for the tours and whatnot alongside that, it's down to your own thoughts whether you believe the possibility of lingering energy. I haven't come across much about the D-Day sites along northern France, which is odd considering how 'fresh' it would be. I know the civil war is a lot more popular than the allied landings for tourism but it's still peculiar. War is certainly a huge freaking magnet for myriad negative emotion and events, the sites I believe are almost nuclear poisoned, many imprints will remain beyond our comprehension.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

You're neither. You're an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks, to collect a bill.

My baby sister has a little hobby farm with her boyfriend in Gettysburg. She says a lot of people talk about the freaky stuff that happens there. They've haven't experienced anything themselves though a they live right by the site of one of the skirmishs.

It's funny, I'm a Ghost nut and have lived in PA my entire life, yet I have never been to Gettysburg... lol

It's on my "2 do" list. Along with a trip to The Big Easy, and Savanna GA..

Yes, Then you get people like me who will explain HOW it is fake, post examples to show it can be reproduced.

They've most likely had it since the 'Battle of Gettysburg'. It all goes back to the courts in Heaven. A demonic spirit can only haunt a location if it has the consent to be there. Same thing with people and possession: Playing with a legitimate Ouija board, or practicing the occult and black magic is enough to give unclean spirit's the right to your life.

They attach to the soul-body and flesh, which is where our sin lies.

Don Dickerman's books "When Pigs Move In" and "Keep The Pigs Out" are great for learning about demons and how they gain consent to our lives.

Its puzzled me for years.The Western Front has no ghost activity considering how many men and animals gave up there lives.Only reported was from WW1 troops who heard and saw Henry's troops coming home apparently which would likely be down to battle fatigue.Odd considering how many died over there.Makes you think ghosts are a mental or physical thing and not a real event. ;)

My favorite quote is "People are haunted, not places." I think that is true for the most part.
