Overview

"Ghosts of Gettysburg VII" is the newest addition to Mark Nesbitt's popular book series. It contains a multitude of stories never heard in public before, including an entire chapter dedicated to the eerie and unexplainable events experienced by tour guides while conducting their tours for the Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours.
The first volume in the "Ghosts of Gettysburg" book series was released in October 1991. Mr. Nesbitt started collecting ghost stories from Gettysburg in the early 1960s. In the 1970s, he worked as a Park Ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park and was assigned to live in some of the historic houses on the Park. His collection of ghost stories grew.
As long as visitors to the Gettysburg area continue to share their "ghostly" experiences, Mr. Nesbitt will continue to add to the "Ghosts of Gettysburg" book series.

Meet the Author

I started out, back in the 1970s, as a National Park Service Ranger/Historian in Gettysburg, PA. I knew that I wanted to be a writer, so after five years with the NPS, I got the crazy idea that I should start my own research and writing company. Thus began Interpretive Enterprises. I spent several years as a freelance writer and wondering if I had lost my mind.

My first book was a children's book: The Little Drummer Boy. It won an award and boosted my confidence. I had been collecting ghost stories of the Gettysburg area since I first arrived, so I decided to approach a local publisher to see if they'd be interested in a book about the Ghosts of Gettysburg. The first ghost book came out in 1991. Since then, I have written fifteen books, covering topics of historical interest, as well as the paranormal. My stories have been seen on The History Channel, A&E, The Discovery Channel, The Travel Channel, Unsolved Mysteries, The Biography Channel, and numerous regional television shows and heard on Coast to Coast AM, and regional radio.

In 1994, I founded "The Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours®," a tour based on the stories in my book series. The tour company started out on a card table in the town square. The next year I rented office space at the corner of Baltimore St. and Steinwehr Ave. Finally, in 1997, I purchased the current headquarters building at 271 Baltimore St.

In 2006, I expanded into Frederickburg, VA and started the Ghosts of Fredericksburg Tours.

It's a ghost story with a dash of history! But be warned; the reality is more haunting than the ghost story! I highly recommend!!!

Do you believe in ghosts? If not then read this book, you might change your mind. One story I read in one of the gettysburg ghost story books( i don't know if it is this one or not) was that there is a ghost woman with a lantern at devil's den calling out the names of her son's because she lost them. The story is that if you see her and look in her eyes you won't be able to sleep ever agan because every time you close your eyes you will see her eyes. This only happens at night so now when my family goes to devil's den at night i refuse to look outside of the car. I highly reccomend this book and all the other Gettysburg Ghost books. Enjoy!
