    Educational and Spooky!! Hard to put it down!!

    Ghosts of Gettysburg: Walking on Hallowed Ground is a collection of 'keep you up all night' short stories and is without question one of the best ghost books I have ever read. Along with true ghost stories written by Dave and Sharon Oester, they have included eerie tales written and contributed by many guest authors common folks who share with the reader ghostly experiences of their own. These stories will keep even a skeptic on the edge of their seat stories of voices of the dead, strange ghostly visions, smells and the touch of ghostly hands from those who still continue to fight this raging battle from 1863 on the haunted battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. For anyone curious about ghost hunting and the actual science used behind the scene to conduct ghost investigations, Drs. Dave and Sharon continue to share their insight of how to photograph ghosts and record ghost voices. These are proven successful methods which were first discovered by them many years ago and now practiced by thousands worldwide. Also included are their dos and don'ts of staying safe, yet being successful while conducting investigations of your own. This is an absolute 'must have' book for anyone planning on visiting Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Look no further if you are wondering where to find haunted hot spots on this hallowed ground. This book will also serve as a reference that will easily guide you straight to haunted fields, Civil War Hospital Sites, monuments, Taverns, Bed and Breakfasts and includes many photographs. If you are a Civil War history enthusiast or a student needing information to work on a school project, this book includes both a significant and impressive amount of historical facts regarding the 3-day battle. If you are looking for a great collection of true ghost stories, educational information, want to learn how to become a ghost hunter or are a history buff, Ghosts of Gettysburg: Walking on Hallowed Ground has it all and is unlike any other ghost book I have read. It is truly a welcome addition to my collection.

    Fun. Janted something more.

    Do not buy this book for history--- it makes a light effort in trying to explain what happened at Gettysburg. There are no maps to help the reader understand where in the National Park these sites ate located. If you know the landscape, this will not be a problem. This book is a fun, light read if you enjoy real "ghost" stories and experiences. I find the authors points of view and opinions about "hunting" interesting, refreshing, and grounded. Methods they use put respect first, cheers to that! I just wanted more history. Knowing the area so well....I was looking for something that might begin to capture the land. Hard to do-- for sure. Well written, easy read. I leave three stars because it is a solid, average book. Not epic and groundbreaking (5*)... and not something best to pass on by (1*).
