Gettysburg, PA

The spirits of the dead are believed to still linger on the grounds of the Civil War’s bloodiest battle. In July 1863, more than 50,000 Americans were killed at Gettysburg; the lifeless bodies of thousands were later dumped into mass graves. Walk the haunting 10,000-acre battlefield, and see the national cemetery and field hospitals where nurses desperately tried to save soldiers’ lives. You just may encounter some strange activity -- cameras malfunctioning, the sounds of weeping nurses and ghostly apparitions -- as many soldiers are said to still haunt the place where they spent the final moments of their unfinished lives.
