"Ghosts at the Grove in Gettysburg"
One of the most active places for me in Gettysburg is the Grove. The Grove is the wooded grounds surrounding the Gettysburg Middle School. There are stories of encounters in these woods, of a little girl who looks innocent until you get close enough to see her glowing eyes…….of Soldiers wandering about above graves
where their war torn bodies were hurriedly buried.
Fighting at the Grove was so savage that weaponry became the dismembered limbs of dead soldiers, swung at the enemy when there was nothing left to fight each other with that day.
I constantly get orbs at the Grove, the trees there are especially “haunted”……..
One evening, while photographing the trees, in a matter of seconds, my camera found only darkness, then a peculiar ghostly shaped wisp, then nothingness again. This is perhaps my favorite paranormal photo, I think the little wisp even has a little curly headed ghostly “do.”
There are many stories of encounters and sightings at the Grove. A guide once told me of a classroom in the Middle School busily taking an exam when the image of a soldier ran through the room and into the opposite wall. He said the exam was cancelled for the day…….I would imagine no one felt like taking a test after that.
Whenever you build upon tainted ground, the energy remains and “moves into” the new foundation, the walls, the classrooms. When you visit Gettysburg, be sure to stop at the Middle School. You can see it from Baltimore Street. Walk through the woods at night, if you dare. I can tell you there is one spirit there with a negative energy; it followed me back to my room one night……..But that is another story, for another blog post.
