    This isn't the first time ghosts have been videoed along that stretch of battlefield... There's been several others taken over the years...
    Real? or not real?

    I can say one thing about Gettysburg ....
    It was probably one of the most eerie places I have ever been.
    You can almost feel the death on the place . At sundown, they play taps and it can be heard all across the battlefield, I still get goosebumps thinking about it.

    Devils Den is where I felt the creeps the most.... Couldn't lay a hand on any one of the stones without imagining them being covered in blood...
    That place is second only to Arlington for invoking such feelings in me... It's a powerful mix, for sure.

    I'd like to think that the images are real, of real men who fought and died for their beliefs, I'm 76 years old now and never encountered a ghost, but I think its possible that the spirits of men of valor may appear as a reminder of the sacrifices made in the making of America.

    If there are any ghosts or spirits, I'd think there would be some at Gettysburg for sure...d2

    Go to Cold Harbor in Virginia and look out over the triangle about dusk.

    In that battle, the Union troops wrote their names and addresses on slips of paper and pinned them between their shoulder blades. After the battle, Grant wanted to send stretcher bearers but Lee demanded a formal Flag of Truce. Grant refused. It wasn't until afternoon of the 4th day the Union stretcher bearers appeared on the battlefield. They found only two survivors.
