Ghost sightings at historic battlefields
At one event we some how got talking about Civil War ghost sightings at historic battle fields. So I wanted to know have you had any ghost sightings at historic battlefields and do you believe in ghost. Also why do you think this ghost came to visit?
The story I heard from our unit goes back to the late nineties at one of the Gettysburg. It was late at night and a few people from our unit were driving along in their car. While driving they saw a young boy dressed in Civil War clothes. They thought he was a lost re-enactor so they picked him up and gave him a ride. During the ride the boy didn't say anything he just sat there with a weird look on his face. At some point during the ride the boy pointed to a random spot on the battle field and they stopped the car. The boy got out and started to walk away. The people from our group started to drive away but before they did they looked back to take one more look at the boy and when they did he was gone. He disappeared into the night.
I was not there at Gettysburg so I have no idea if this story is true. I personally do not believe in ghost. Until I actually see one of these "ghost"
For myself then I'll believe. If this story is true I think the ghost came out to visit because he knew there were people creeping around at night. The young boy was either a rifleman who lied about his age or a musician who died at the battle of Gettysburg. The spot he chose to get dropped off at might have been where he died and he was going back to his final resting spot.
So lets hear your stories
