Our walking route takes you on a journey through Gettysburg’s historic downtown.
Our tour is both informative and thrilling.
Suitable for anyone and everyone curious about the haunted history of Gettysburg and its role in our nation’s history. Newcomers who’ve never done a ghost tour are as welcome as enthusiastic ghost hunters.
Three most haunted stops on the tour:
- The Farnsworth house – Once a sniper’s nest for Confederate soldiers, picking off Union troops. Now a Bed and Breakfast with some spooky permanent residents.
- The Jennie Wade House | The Farnsworth House– With bullet holes in the walls, and some remaining in the doors, this house was caught in the crossfire as Jennie Wade and her family made bread for the soldiers.
- The extended Civil War Ghosts tour includes the Gettysburg Hotel, haunted by a couple. Romantic spirits caught on opposite sides of the conflict perhaps? Extend your tour and hear their story.
With over 46,000 soldiers killed in the three-day battle, Gettysburg has too many tragic tales for any single walking tour. Civil War Ghosts presents a route that shows all sides of this hideous conflict.
Both armies clashed around a town of just 1,500 inhabitants. Nearly every structure was commandeered for military use. Residents responded as humans will, in every way thinkable.
Book your place now to hear about Tillie Pierce, the daughter of a butcher wrote a book about her experiences during the war, of her and friends singing ‘Our Union Forever’, as six thousand of Buford’s cavalry passed through the town. Later as the battle grew nearer, she saw more troops passing and heard them wonder when they would be sent back in the horse-drawn ambulances that were also on the streets.
Sooner than she would have wanted the town overflowed with wounded soldiers. Tilly sprang into heroic action, tending wounds and dressings and making many men comfortable as they lay dying around the homestead, the outbuildings, and many other places around the small town of Gettysburg.
The Inn that bears her name has many stories of hauntings, hear this, and many more fascinating stories on the Civil War Ghost Tour now.
“Our tour guide was great. I have been coming to Gettysburg for close to 50 years and taken lots of ghost tours. This one gave information I did not know. The tour guide is the most important part of the tour and I would give this gentleman a 5+ stars! Thanks for a fun evening!
