"Ghosts of Gettysburg V" is the fifth volume in Mark Nesbitt's popular book series. This volume includes tales of eerie events and more ghostly encounters on the Gettysburg battlefield in such well known areas as Devil's Den, the National Cemetery, the Triangular Field, Oak Ridge and Little Round Top.
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 his "Ghosts of Gettysburg" book series.
About the Author
I started out 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.
