Anyone who has not visited there, should in my opinion, to get a better understanding of this amazing yet truly shocking part of our country's history (when you think from the point of how many casualties in such a small town) which is quite overwhelming to see.   I am also dropping a 2 part podcast on my paranormal channel, because at night we took the ghost tour and have more to share.  Here are some video links from my travel: A witness tree to the Battle of Gettysburg is here on my tiktok. tribute from Maryland on loss of her soldies is here: A tribute to New York is here: view of the Battlefield is here:Part One of the Ghosts we met in Gettysburg here: A video of the Orb from our ghost tour Gettysburg here: My Etsy shop supports my hosting fees:  https://RetroChalet.etsy.comContract Cedric for a tour in Gettysburg by using this Louisiana contact information as he has moved and is now a resident of Gettysburg at the time of this podcast.   New Orleans Paranormal – Sometimes the right answer is…NOPE!
