More than 7,000 people died in the three days of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. It's the bloodiest and goriest battle fought to date on American soil. It's easy to imagine that some of those soldiers haunt the battlefield to this day. This book gives readers a chance to look back in time at the history of Gettysburg, from the first shots fired to the desperate, bloody fight and the Confederacy's final retreat. Primary sources highlight the battle's historical context as a major turning point in the American Civil War. Intriguing maps show details of where so many soldiers died and where their ghosts are said to still linger today.

Ghosts of Gettysburg: Walking on Hallowed Ground is a keep-you-up-all-night book from real life master ghost hunters, Drs. Dave and Sharon Oester, cofounders of the International Ghost Hunters Society, the largest ghost research society on the Internet. Drs. Dave and Sharon Oester spend their time traveling the back roads of America, investigating some of its most haunted places. Over a six-year period, they explored and recorded the amazing ghostly experiences of visitors to the Gettysburg battlefield. One year they devoted a full month for battlefield investigations and drove over 1,000 miles on the battlefield gathering data for this book. Drs. Dave and Sharon Oester were the first to hold ghost conferences in Gettysburg teaching about ghost photography and electronic voice phenomena known as EVP. Their annual ghost conferences started the ghost hunting movement in Gettysburg. Drs. Dave and Sharon Oester share 40 haunted sites on the battlefield, not according to folklore, but from their own personal investigations using scientific tools to validate the existence of ghosts. Each haunted site contains a short history of its part in this three-day battle. Read about the ten most haunted Civil War hospitals sites that can be visited by the reader.

This book is the third in a series of anthropological studies which analyze ghosts and haunting phenomena in their cultural context. A history of visitations to the Gettysburg landscape is linked to the presence or absence of anomalous sensory manifestations. The preliminary analysis of the data suggests that the hauntings at Gettysburg may be a product of sociocultural factors, in part related to the growth of heritage tourism, rather than any ghostly manifestations by civil war soldiers. Since this is a preliminary analysis, a research design is proposed to further excavate the Gettysburg landscape. This approach is based on the use of ethnographic context, spatial symmetry, cultural relativity, and performance-based investigative practices. The author proposes that through this methodology, acontrolled excavation of the landscape can be made, thus unearthing a more scientific analysis and evaluation of Gettysburg as a haunted cultural place.

Gettysburg-Site of the epic battle that forever changed the United States. Some also say it is the most haunted place on earth. In Ghosts at Gettysburg, the third Oliver Family Adventure, the Oliver family visits Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, site of the three-day battle. While Tyler and Tommy participate in a re-enactment, learning about the battle and those that fought it, their sister Paige and mother Judy reluctantly learn of the town's haunted history through frightening encounters of their own. On their very first evening there they see pictures of glowing orbs on the battlefield and meet a mysterious woman who seems to be everywhere. While Tommy marches with Confederate troops and Tyler helps man the cannons atop Cemetery Ridge, the Oliver women encounter the ghosts of a grieving father and a sad young soldier, forcing them to rethink their ideas about ghosts, spirits and hauntings. When the battle reaches its climax at Pickett's Charge the boys find themselves on opposite sides of that bloody clash. There they learn what it was to be a soldier in the American Civil War.

After the release of Ghosts of Gettysburg, author Mark Nesbitt was deluged with faxes, phone calls and letters(this was before email and social media!) from people anxious to share their ghostly experiences on the Gettysburg battlefield. He had expected to be accused of either making the stories up or being crazy, along with his sources, for believing in their tales of ghosts. Apparently, the publication of a book chronicling people's interludes with the "other world" somehow validated their own experiences! Ghosts of Gettysburg II includes more ghostly encounters on the Gettysburg battlefield, the Gettysburg College campus, the Lutheran Seminary, and in and around the town and houses of Gettysburg. As long as visitors to the Gettysburg area continue to share their "ghostly" experiences, Mr. Nesbitt will continue to add to the Ghosts of Gettysburg book series.

Along with more ghost stories from Gettysburg, this newest addition to the "Ghosts of Gettysburg" series includes stories about places with a Gettysburg connection and tales of ghostly manifestations that have re-occurred in Gettysburg-a ghostly déjà vu. That ghosts exist cannot be doubted any more. Why they exist is also, seemingly, common knowledge. Now I am interested in how they continue to manifest themselves, and the questions maddeningly outnumber the answers: How do we continue to exist after earthly death? Where do ghosts dwell? Another dimension? A parallel universe, yet invisible? How do they gather the energy needed to become visible, or make noise, or move physical objects before our eyes and ears? Do they want to communicate with us, as it appears they do? How can we facilitate and amplify this communication? The ghosts of Gettysburg may be abundant...but they are also elusive. This is something I've wanted to do for years: to lend some legitimacy to the data on the paranormal I've gathered over the decades. I am lucky because Gettysburg has been a part of my life for nearly sixty years. I have had unique access to one of--if not the--most haunted site, acre for acre, in America.

My mind was spinning at this point. Here I was - someone who grew up not believing in ghosts, a veteran journalist used to questioning everything - apparently having a conversation with a captain who fought at Gettysburg more than 150 years ago. Was it really possible? Was this some gigantic, wildly ingenious incredible hoax, or was this conversation somehow real? And what was it that brought me - a once dyed-in-the-wool paranormal doubter - to this haunted bridge in search of ghosts? - Don Allison After years of experiences that he could not rationally explain -- experiences that many people encounter, and do shrug off or rationalize - award winning newspaper editor and columnist Don Allison decided to search for answers. Experiences that Don and his grandson experienced in Gettysburg in the spring of 2015 finally convinced Don to present this serious look at the paranormal.. This is what noted paranormal investigator and historian Mark Nesbitt, author of the "Ghosts of Gettysburg" series of books, has to say about "I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg": "A great read. Very entertaining ... I think you've created an "Everyman's" explanation of paranormal experiences. Most people ignore or rationalize away true paranormal events. Your book covers the many types of paranormal events AS paranormal events, and explains how you came (reluctantly, in some cases) to those conclusions." Ghosts busted: Beyond the Fear Testimony throughout recorded history proves beyond a reasonable doubt that ghosts, or energy giving us the impression of ghosts, do indeed exist. People of impeccable reputations, with no reason to lie, have sworn to paranormal encounters. For whatever reason - perhaps fear, perhaps superstition - many people refuse to even consider the possibility of ghosts. In fact, they will go on the attack against those who do share their experiences. Veteran award-winning daily newspaper editor Don Allison used to be among those devout skeptics, even going so far as to doubt his own grandmother's claims of experiences in a haunted house. But after encountering the unexplained many times, he reluctantly concluded he indeed had experienced the paranormal. Eventually, after what he described as a mind-blowing paranormal encounter at Gettysburg, Pa., he could contain his curiosity no longer. He decided to write about his experiences, and to go a step further - to share the science behind what he had encountered. The result is the latest volume from Faded Banner Publications, "I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg: A Journalist's Journey into the Paranormal." Allison said fear of people's reactions to a book on this topic made him think long and hard before tackling this project. "Once I decided to proceed with this book," he explains, "I realized I could hold nothing back. I am treating the paranormal as I would any other topic. I am sharing my own experiences and what I have learned from research. I am passing on what other people have told me about the subject and in some cases their own perceptions of what I have experienced."
