Gettysburg III photos!

Hiya Everyone, Kat here!

Over the course of our Gettysburg III event, I took over 800 photos! Here are some of the best from our weekend visiting the battlefield and broadcasting from the David Stewart Farm.

Henry, Steve Shockley, Tammy Shockley, Tiffaney and Joe Mason, Craig, Tabby Cat and I met up and then drove out to Sachs Bridge.

The bridge saw hundreds of Confederate troops cross it after the Battle of Gettysburg. TabbyCat and Steve, and to a mild extent myself, smelled pipe smoke along the creek on the west bank. The bridge is said to be haunted, and one of the phenomena that occurs there is the smell of General Lee’s pipe smoke.

Next, we went up to Little Round Top…

 

…and then met up with Tina at Devil’s Den!

After exploring the area, we picked up some Tommy’s Pizzas and had a lively evening of sharing ghost stories at the David Stewart Farm. Henry and I had rented spare rooms at the farm, so we stayed there all weekend long!

And that was all on Friday!

On Saturday morning Henry, Tina, Steve, Tammy, and I met up at the Lincoln Diner. I love their pancakes! We also made plans for what sites we were going to visit during the day, before the radio show.

A little surprise was a Confederate Reenactment site next to the Rupp House in downtown Gettysburg.

We first met up with Nancy du Tertre (the skeptical psychic and previous guest on our show),  Craig (a former host of the show) and a friend of his at the Jennie Wade House. We didn’t have time to tour the house, but we did get to see the door with the bullet hole Jennie was standing next to when she was shot. After that, we went to the Gettysburg National Cemetery.

The group then walked around downtown Gettysburg, visiting the new Ghost Shop, and running into the legend himself, John Zaffis! Henry visited a haunted outhouse, and we got ice cream at Mr. G’s!

Oh yeah, and we finally found Henry a proper restroom?

We also visited Spangler’s Spring and found the landmark for Steve’s great, great (possibly a third great here) grandfather’s unit who fought at Gettysburg.

 

After that, it was time for us to get a quick bite to eat and head back to the David Stewart Farm to set up for the show.

 

Also, here is what the inside of the barn, which used to be a Confederate field hopital, looked like:

See along that far wall? We could see the silhouettes of late soldiers smoking along it. We could see the glowing embers of their cigarettes as they would put them up to their mouths for a puff. Both Tammy and TabbyCat had the sensation of being touched. Henry also saw his first full-on shadow person and could also see the glowing embers of the cigarettes, so he can’t say he hasn’t seen a ghost any more!

Before leaving on Sunday, I met up with Craig, Tiffaney, and Joe at Devil’s Den. This time there weren’t so many tourists around, and Tiffaney did hit on some things at Devil’s Den. Also, I got  a rather weird photo…

 

 

The last stop I made was at the Triangular Field. Last year I saw a full apparition of a Confederate Soldier walking through the field. This year I didn’t see him.

And that was that! To next year’s Gettysburg IV! See you next April!
