Gettysburg has become a place of mysterious, unexplainable stories of out-of- place noises and smells, of sights that are out-of-time, and of strange experiences in what should just be a jumble of rocks or a benign open field. The area is well known for its paranormal activity. More people died young and suddenly, under tragic circumstances, at a high level of emotion, than anywhere else in the entire United States. While author Mark Nesbitt cannot give you a specific time or place where you may intercept the spirits on their journeys around the area made infamous by the slaughter between thousands of countrymen, he does give the reader advice on the techniques, equipment, times of day, month or year, and probable locations to help in their quest to encounter one of the Ghosts of Gettysburg. To assist the reader, Google map links are included in the investigation sections for each of the haunted venues.

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 Fredericksburg, VA and started the Ghosts of Fredericksburg Tours.
