The home of the bloodiest battle in the American Civil War is Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Because so many thousands of American men were murdered during the battle, the place is considered to be haunted to this day. The location is also home to where President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg Address, which we will print in full later in this article.
Over the more than one hundred fifty years since the Battle of Gettysburg left thousands dead in the ditches, the location of the battle has been a notably haunted location. The battle marked Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s final invasion of the civilized North, where he was turned back to Union troops.
In the video included below, Greg Yuelling of New Jersey believes he has captured a ghost sighting for the ages. He was driving through the battleground during the night, the sight of which is now a national park, and he believes he has captured evidence of ghosts haunting the location from his footage on September 2, 2022.
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.”
With the advent of modern technology, more videos are capturing ghosts in action like this one from Gettysburg.
