Friends Drive Through Civil War Battlefield At Night. Post Footage Online, Get Frantic Calls

Updated August 29, 2017

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is home to one of the most painful memories in American history. On July 1-3, 1863, more than 50,000 soldiers lost their lives or got injured while fighting their own countrymen. Because the country had divided in two over the issue of slavery and states rights, brothers and cousins were killing each other on the battlefield of America. The Battle of Gettysburg remains one of the most brutal fights ever fought on American soil. The ground would have been painted red with blood. Corpses would have littered the space between encampments. And the smell would have made even the toughest men retch. Because so many died so violently during the Battle of Gettysburg, many people claim the site is still haunted today. As a result, many teenagers like to drive through it in the hopes of scaring each other. But when two men decided to go into the historic site at night, they were in the for scare of their lives. See the video footage included below.

“I don’t know what everyone else believes in. But personally I am a Christian. when you die you either go to Heaven, or you go to Hell. Now the Bible never talks about Ghosts, but it does talk of evil spirits. The only way i can see this to be real is that whoever or whatever that thing is, has to be some sort of evil spirit or something. may all those who fought in the civil war and I hope all mankind may rest in peace in Heaven. AMEN”

“So sad to know their souls are forever cursed to haunt the battlefield where they gave their lives”

“A lot of people saw these soldier ghost almost everywhere and some herd musket fire too! It’s just scary! Don’t even bring your kids because they might see the ghost and maybe here musket fire!”

“After viewing the end several times, I can see the Confederate officer with his right hand on the hilt of his sword, looking right at the light source…”
