In the dark shadows of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where blood once soaked the ground, and the echoes of the deadliest battle in American Civil War history still linger, an eerie presence remains. This hallowed place, where thousands of men perished, is believed to be haunted by those very souls. It is here that President Abraham Lincoln delivered his renowned Gettysburg Address, which we shall revisit later in this tale.
For over a century and a half, the battlefield of Gettysburg has been shrouded in ghostly whispers, bearing witness to the lingering spirits of the fallen. The battle marked Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s final incursion into the civilized North, where he was ultimately repelled by Union troops.
In the video shared below, Greg Yuelling of New Jersey claims to have captured a spine-chilling ghost sighting for the ages. He was driving through the battleground late at night, now a national park, and believes he has captured evidence of ghosts haunting the site in his footage from September 2, 2022.
Here’s Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, delivered on November 19, 1863:
“Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate — we cannot consecrate — we cannot hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
In this era of advanced technology, more and more videos like this one from Gettysburg are capturing what appear to be ghosts in action. So, do you believe the site of the Battle of Gettysburg remains haunted to this day?
