Watch: Ghosts Filmed at Gettysburg?

By Tim Binnall

A tourist visiting the notoriously haunted Civil War battlefield at Gettysburg captured footage of what he believes to be a pair of ghosts running near some cannons. The spooky encounter reportedly occurred earlier this month when Greg Yuelling and his family visited the historic site in Pennsylvania. "We were driving along one night and we started hearing noises," he recalled, "I heard things to the left and my uncle heard things to the right, and there was a fog, but the fog was weird, it was only in one patch not dispersed."

Suddenly, Yuelling says, "we saw these shapes moving in the darkness, they were the size of humans, one of them ran right through the cannon." Looking back on the eerie incident, he mused that "it was weird, it was scary, it was crazy. My uncle got so scared he rolled up the window." Having filmed the potential ghost sighting with his cell phone, Yuelling proceeded to watch the footage "over and over again" and even went so far as to play the video on his big screen TV in order to "get a closer look."

Perhaps the most unnerving aspect of Yuellling's tale is that, after he got home, he "got this strange, ominous feeling, like something was telling me to go back" to the battlefield. However, the sighting was so unsettling that he could not muster the courage to return to the site. Noting that he had previously been skeptical of alleged ghost videos, Yuelling conceded that "I believe everything now."

While that may be the case, not everyone is convinced that Yuelling's video actually shows any apparitions. Skeptical observers argue that the 'ghosts' which so frightened him were likely a trick of light and shadow produced by the illumination from his car reflecting off the cannons and distorted by the water on his windshield. Considering how impactful the experience was for Yuelling, we're guessing he may beg to differ on that assessment. With that in mind, what's your take on the odd video?
