Full description

Step into the shadows of this historic American town, and feel what it was like to be a soldier or citizen during the violent, three-day battle that scarred the land forever. Begin your tour at the iconic Brickhouse Inn/Welty House, where confederate sharpshooters took out union soldiers from the attic. Many believe their spirits are still trapped there. You'll then wind through seven other significant, haunted locations before circling back to the meeting point. Capture evidence of Jennie Wade, the only civilian casualty of the battle, as her spirit moves through her former home — seen through the fatal bullet hole in her door. Feel a chill scurry up your spine as ghostly soldiers surround you in the darkness. Learn little-known, behind-the-scenes information about the reality of war. Choose the 1.5-hour extended tour to visit three additional spooky sites, including Arbor House Publishing, which is famous for its 'floating orbs.

The walking tour is an intriguing way to stroll up and down the historical streets of Gettysburg. The tour guide shared fascinating excerpts from days gone by. Throughout the evening's journey, Justin captivated the audience with tales of the battle and how such profound loss left behind remnants of suffering and mysteries that continue to dwell amongst the streets of Gettysburg.

Vincent was very knowledgeable about the area and had pictures to go with the tour! I had a strange experience the next morning…I wear a Cross necklace all the time and never take it off. For some reason this morning the chain on my necklace broke and my cross fell to the floor. I would think anything about it except I took a picture of one of the houses on the tour and when I looked at it you can see a weird haze in the window that was not there when I took the picture or after I took it. I tried to take it again but the haze never showed up again. Have fun!!!
