Subject: Ghostly Gettysburg

Message Detail:
In the early Sixties I was employed in a TB hospital at
South Mountain. This was before the park was as tightly
patrolled as it is now, particularly at night. A group
of us made numerous nightly excursions over the field.
We soon discovered that the gate to the interior of the
Penna. Monument was broken granting us access to the
ramparts. As one looked out over the Copse onto the
site of the Charge you could almost visualize Armistead
leading his men to the Stone Wall. Two other areas sure
to raise a tingle in the nape of the neck were around
Devil's Den and at Spangler's springs below Culp's Hill.
Though I never actually "saw" any spirits the feeling
of being surrounded by presences was always there.
Perhaps this was the result of an overactive imagination
fortified by Rolling Rock.
