This tour begins at the Gettysburg Heritage Center and sets out on a loop around the battlefield. First, you will be introduced to this haunted place and your expert narrator Mark Nesbitt. Then, you’ll be get up to speed about why Gettysburg is so haunted.Then you’ll visit Oak Ridge and hear the harrowing tale of the brigadier general who sent his men to certain doom… and what became of them after they met their untimely end. After that, you’ll continue to the site of General Lee’s headquarters on Seminary Ridge and hear a chilling account of a soldier who was buried alive among the corpses of his comrades.Continuing on, you will be given the details on true stories of unexplainable events visitors have witnessed, from noises in the attic to an unwelcome houseguest who appeared in a chaplain’s bed in the dead of night. As you pass by Schmucker Hall on Seminary Ridge, try to suppress your squeamish side as you hear about the countless amputations which forever stained those walls when the hall became a makeshift hospital.Then, stop by the very spot where people have seen the long-dead specter of John Reynolds, a soldier whose love for the woman he never had the chance to marry could not be ended… not even by death.After that, you’ll hear about the shocking collision between the worlds of the living and the dead which took place during a routine reenactment of the battle. On the same day as the infamous Pickett’s Charge, reenactors found themselves momentarily engulfed by a cold darkness--which none of them could explain.Next, swing by the Eisenhower Farm, where doors slam and footsteps echo through the home… even though no one lives there any longer.At Little Round Top, listen to accounts of a mysterious stranger visitors have seen on this bloodied hilltop, who seems to belong to a world not quite our own. Then it’s on to the Valley of Death, the site of tremendous violence and a distinct lingering presence from the past.But not all the ghosts in this battlefield are unfriendly. In the most unlikely location of Devil’s Den, hear an account of a soldier who suffered through the worst of the battle, yet sometimes offers help to visitors who get lost among the boulders--perhaps to prevent them from meeting the same fate he did so long ago.As you head toward the infamously-haunted Weikert House, you’ll hear about film crews who have tried for years to capture and explain the supernatural phenomena which grip this landscape, and the shocking things they’ve uncovered during their time here after dark.At last, you’ll arrive at the site of Pickett’s Charge, where countless men were sent needlessly to their grisly deaths. As you’ll learn, many were never able to reconcile with their senseless ends and continue to haunt this field, hoping to somehow change the outcome of that fateful day. This will bring you to the conclusion of your tour, and not a moment too soon--only the bravest souls remain on the Gettysburg battlefield for long after the sun goes down!
