About a 4 hr. drive from here is the Historic Town of Gettysburg, PA where one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War took place on July 1 – 3, 1863. The Town still remains much as it did back in the day’s of the big fight between the Northern & Southern Armies. Despite the modernization of the old town there are many buildings still standing from that time in History. There is much to see there from Touring the Battlefield to walking around the Town and observe the many Historic area’s. You don’t really have enough time in one day to see everything. I’ve been to Gettysburg 3 times, so far and still don’t tire of it.
One of the things you can experience is a “Ghost Walk”. A Guide will take you around the Town and tell you what used to be there and what happened in that area where modern building’s now sit, where once there was nothing but a open field. She tells you of what buildings/area’s are haunted and why. What she has to say was very interesting to hear. Just one of them is where the old Jail is. The lights in the windows go off and on for no reason. Other places where ghostly sightings and sounds are heard for unknown reasons. The walking Tour last’s for about a hour and a half. I enjoyed every minute of it.
While walking along with our Guide she happen to point out this house that was in Confederate hands during the Battle. It is now a private residence. She told us of the History behind this house and while doing so I turned and snapped a photo of it with my Olympus D-460 DSR camera. Sorry about the clarity of it, but it’s only a 1.3 Megapixal camera.
Now, I took the camera home and down-loaded the photo. In reviewing the photo I noticed “spots” on the Image that were not there when I took it. I looked again, and again, but still could not justify the “spots.” The only light there was the one on the front porch and on the very end on the right side. Decided to e-mail this exact photo to the people who ran the Tours and asked them just what those “spots” were.
They replied to me that what I have here is “energy” that is in the shape of a “spot” left over from the Civil War!! They asked if they could have the photo, with my permission. I almost find that hard to believe. However, Digital Camera’s are known to see what the human eye can not. They have caught “ghosts” in the image many times that have been documented. Did I capture something from the past? I don’t really know for sure. What do you think? You be the judge.

My husband is a Civil War nerd so we have been to Gettysburg a few times but I have not yet wandered around the town, just the battlefield. The ghost walk sounds fun.
We did one of the ghost tours. It was a lot of fun. I don’t recall any spots on my images. Perhaps our ghost tour was ghost free. Cheers!
