Of all the Civil War ghost stories, the tales from Gettysburg, PA, are some of the scariest and most intense. Considering the site housed one of the worst battles of the war, it makes sense that thousands of lost, angry, and hurt souls may have been left behind.
The Battle of Gettysburg lasted from July 1-3, 1863, and pitted Confederate General Robert E. Lee against Union General George G. Meade. More than 50,000 soldiers lost their lives, and countless more were injured or went missing during battle
While it gave the Union a victory that many historians consider to be the great turning point in the war, the area was left with a rather haunted reputation and is now home to plenty of Civil War ghost tours.
Today, the haunted history of Gettysburg isn't limited to the area now protected as a National Park. Macabre vibes run all through the town, including buildings where fighting and death took place.
