Haunted Destination: Gettysburg National Military Park

Gettysburg, PA

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.
