Ghost Story Video; Civil War Group Narration

Ghosts of Gettysburg script:

Ghosts have been thought of causing fatal murders. But what if the ghosts were from the battle of Gettysburg? The battle of Gettysburg was a deadly battle in the Civil War.

The purpose of the battle was to end the Civil War and to decide who won. The battle of Gettysburg began on July 1 through July 3 in the year 1863 in Adams County, Pennsylvania. The battle was the turning tide of the civil war. The Union (the northern states) won the battle of Gettysburg against the Confederate (the southern states). The battle fields of Gettysburg are like graveyards due to how many people died there.

The ghosts that we are studying are sometimes found in the battle fields they died in according to many people like Mark Nesbitt. Mark Nesbitt wrote the book The Ghosts of Gettysburg. The book is full of stories of spirits, apparitions and haunted places of the battle fields.

After searching around the internet we found some amazing photos of ghosts. The photographers claim them to be real but we think some are fake. One picture we found was a picture of Harry Houdini. Houdini was a famous escape artist who believed that some spiritualists were faking ghost acts .This picture of Harry Houdini with the alleged spirit of Abraham Lincoln, who was a president during the Civil War. To find this photo we went to google.com. Next clicked "images" and type the key words, Houdini and ghosts.

To find pictures of ghost in Gettysburg there go to Civilwar.com. Then go to Civil War Links. After that click Pennsylvania. Then feel free and clickGettysburg (1),
Gettysburg (2), Gettysburg (3), or Gettysburg (4).

    These two posters show how Harry Houdini did not believe that all spiritualists actually had the power to contact people who passed on after they died. He would show how they were really fakes.
