  Gettysburg Ghost (close up) (2)
Gettysburg Ghost (close up) (2)

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.

Though it could be a tree, it does indeed look like a soldier.

Wow, I think I see what your talking about and maybe its a ghost and maybe not but why would I put any photos in here to share with these people if some are just going to make fun of it?

You know, since it was described to me what I should be looking for, I can see TWO figures that match the deion. Just shows how absurd a lot of these claims really are!

Is it just me or does this pic look painted in a way?

I clearly see a man; he is dressed casually, and I believe him to be another tourist. The gun is nothing more than a branch of a fir tree. He is wearing beige cords, a dark brown shirt, or jacket, and sporting a lightish brown hat. He seems to be benignly watching the events unfolding of the cameo.

I can see it. It's a tree. But I also see a shadow of what appears to be a gorilla sitting on top of the rock. Zoo maybe?

Optical illusion in a very bad photo as the glare from the t-shirts attests.

its predator from the movie
Comment icon #16 Posted by sabbo on 23 April, 2005, 4:38
I see two big foot lookalikes- one behind another. They are both pretty creepy. Maybe Bigfoot is starting a family?

Don't see anything...but I had an experience at the same spot. Coming home from NY in October after working Trade Center, my friends and I stopped at Gburg a little after midnight and drove around(park was closed) Down from this very spot (my favorite place on the field), something fell crashing out of a tree. No wind. At the observation tower near the NC monument, same thing happened on the same wind.

There is something at the top of the photo. I think that the camera caught an image that the eye couldn't detect.
