Gettysburg is famous for two things: what happened there on July 1-3, 1863 and President Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address four months later. The battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War. Around 50,000 Confederate and Union soldiers lost their lives at Gettysburg and it’s said that many of their souls are still around.
This week we're mixing history and the supernatural with historian Mike Nesbitt. Mike says that Gettysburg is the most haunted town in the country. I'm going to ask him why...and so much more.
Mark Nesbitt was a National Park Service Ranger/Historian for five years at Gettysburg before starting his own research and writing company. He has published over twenty books including the national award-winning Ghosts of Gettysburg series, two Ghost Hunters Field Guides and Civil War Ghost Trails. In 1994, he created the Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours based on stories from his books.
