Welcome to a historic Gettysburg and the Ghosts of Gettysburg battlefield tour. This tape will take you on an incredible journey to the sites on the Gettysburg battlefield where mysterious and unexplainable happenings have occurred.
The battlefield and roads are open from thirty minutes before sunrise to thirty minutes after sunset.
This is not a night activity. Be sure to complete this tour by sunset. Some parts of the tour go through the battlefield which closes at sunset.
Today’s stories are brought to you by Mark Nesbitt, who is the first to create ghost walking tours in Gettysburg. Based on his own frightening experiences living in Gettysburg for over thirty years and the ghost stories told to him by the people who actually experienced them, these stories combine town history with the mystery of the spirit world.
A visit to the Gettysburg Battlefield is not complete without stopping at the Gettysburg Heritage Center Museum.
