  Gettysburg Soldier (close up)
Gettysburg Soldier (close up)
Image credit: © cooquack

Uploader comment: Earlier this summer, my wife, my two boys and I went to Gettysburg. We toured the battlefield via bus, and then went back to get a closer look at Devils Den. We were looking at some scenes of famous pictures when we found the spot of the "staged dead sharpshooter" picture. While my children walked around the spot I took a picture. Later, when we got home to look at our pictures, I noticed what I at first thought was a statue in the background. I thought to myself that I didn't remember a statue and when I looked closer I realized that it wasn't. To me it appears to be a walking soldier with a rifle laying over his soldier. When you blow the picture up large much of it gets too grainy to see, but other parts appear; specifically a face and fingers around the gun.

I do see it, and its a great picture, very clear, close up i know but dont believe its just leaves and shadow (my opinion), possibly photo shopped? Not too sure!

those are leaves. I see what you think is a figure, but it's just imagination.

I don't know about Gettysburg, but Vicksburg is full of strange things that anyone with any psychic sensitivity can pick up on. I visited there as a child and was terrified. On following trips there, ever after I was gown, I found the place disturbing. I have seen photos taken at other Civil War Battlegrounds that I would swear were legitimate.

Damn, I saw the brown ghost in the other picture and thought the green one was an illusion now it was all about the green one after all. The one I thought was trees.The green is ww11 but the brown was civil.

I don't see it, even after reading all the comments...

To think, the ghost are still fighting for what they believe in, even after death. Even if this photo is fake, the possibility of ghost still thinking that they are in a war is amazing.

I disagree with Heretaunga. It looks like it's definatly photo-shoped to me.

All I can see is the different amounts of light on a bush. I see stuff all the time like this at my house.

I see a helmet and some arms but nothing else really...

That's not a closeup, you just cut out part of the picture!

It's over there....through the trees...
Comment icon #18 Posted by eternal light on 25 September, 2005, 7:04
It's two Fir trees for God's sake! One behind the other.

I can see it. It's like someone holding [cradling] a rifle. Definetly something in this one.

Comment icon #11 Posted by angel88 on 8 June, 2005, 4:04

Comment icon #10 Posted by allenanddianna on 19 May, 2005, 5:06
The [pic) is way too small, blow it up for gees sake.
Comment icon #9 Posted by allenanddianna on 19 May, 2005, 5:06
If none of you ever believe in ghosts.....then go visit Gettysburg, Pa. Civil War battlefield. We've seen some of the weirdest sites in the world there, things we can't explain,. marching soldiers, standing guards you can see through. people calling for help, crying for their Sargents or Mothers, painful crys. Little Round Top is the scariest place of all, you can hear whispers, crys, calls out and I tripped over a musket rifle then it vanished..

Just an optical illusion and bad photography
Comment icon #7 Posted by heretaunga on 7 May, 2005, 20:49
Definately real. Those trees and that rock are in no way photoshopped.
Comment icon #6 Posted by thegreatwhitehorse on 27 March, 2005, 23:59
let me start by clarifying..."close-up" is not the same as "cropped image"!! This is NOT a "close-up"! It is merely cropped, and it sucks to try and squint at this. By the way...there is nothing in this photograph that is unusual. It is foliage.

itīs just a gap between the bushes..
Comment icon #4 Posted by captainzaggis on 2 February, 2005, 0:23
I see what Only1Genesis sees, but not what we are aparently supposed to see.
Comment icon #3 Posted by hypodermic on 23 January, 2005, 23:39
itīs just an illusion..
Comment icon #2 Posted by only1genesis on 21 January, 2005, 3:33
Maybe you need to outline it so the blind people can see it! I can see the form of a looks as if his arms are crossed, and he has on a hat!
