Ghosts of Gettysburg

The photo is obviously doctored, but to this day folks say they can hear the screams of wounded men. The rebel yell in the distance. Pattering of horses, with sabers unsheathe and at the ready. Mortars bursting over head. Hot summer heat baking the corpses of a thousand man. Friends killing friends, entire families lost to the first volley, men giving it all out of respect for their commanders and country, not the politicians in Washington nor those in Richmond. The ghosts of soldiers still fighting for a worthless war.

July 1st through the fourth were some of the bloodiest battles of the american civil war, the bloodiest war is US history. This was a turning point due to Lee losing most of his force, leaving him to wage a defensive war. (fun fact: some Chinese fought for the confeds due to living/growing up in the south)

For the record, it was the third the battle came to a close. The armies would have a few more skirmishes in the days following.

I went to Gettysburg on my way to DC on my 8th grade trip. We were learning about a cannon that was used during the battles and heard a ear ringing gunshot. Me and some others ducked in the back and the tour guide then told us about the ghostly presents around. The gunshot sounded exactly like a rifle used in documentaries of the civil war. One of the weirdest things I have ever experienced.

Okay, story time. I went to that damned place during an 8th grade field trip. We were with this tour guide who honestly believed he was an incarnation of a soldier who died on the battlefield. Anyways, during a nighttime visit to the cemetery, my friend and I decide to walk slightly away from the group to get some pictures of some of the statutes with no one around. It was almost dark, but light enough to still take pictures. We took about 7 before we both at the same time got a sinking cold feeling, like we couldn't move and were being watched. Obviously we scadattled the **** out of there immediately. When we finally got back to our hotel, we laughed about it and sat down to look at the pictures. mfw the third picture, which was a statue of a horse with two hooves in the air, and that was about 40 feet from us had a man with a sword leaning against it.

Will not be going back.
