Tourists spot 'human-sized' figures at Gettysburg site

Tourists visiting the historic Civil War battle site in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, spotted a couple of two human-sized apparitions. You can see the creepy clip here:

Pretty spooky, eh?

Greg Yuelling took his daughters and two of his uncles to the battleground in September last year to soak up a bit of history, but they ended up getting more than they bargained for when they seemingly stumbled across some ghosts making the most of the night.

Yuelling, a store manager from New Jersey, said he was driving along the road at night when he and his family spotted 'figures moving in the darkness'.

Fortunately for us, he managed to capture the spooky footage on camera.

The dad went on to say that one of his uncles was so spooked he rolled up the car window, before adding that it was a 'scary' experience - you can say that again.

He said: "We just went there as tourists, to learn more about the history of the Civil War and see the old battle ground, where the Gettysburg Address was given and all that stuff.

"We were driving along one night and we started hearing noises, 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.

"Then we saw these shapes moving in the darkness, they were the size of humans, one of them ran right through the cannon.

"It was weird, it was scary, it was crazy... my uncle got so scared he rolled up the window.

"We went back and watched the videos over and over again, and then we blew them up on the big screen to get a closer look.

"That made us even more freaked out.

"It was really exciting, but I also got this strange, ominous feeling, like something was telling me to go back there. I couldn't go to sleep but I was creeped out, so I didn't go."

The Battle of Gettysburg was fought between Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War in July 1863.

The three-day bloodbath resulted in the deaths of more than 50,000 people, along with 5,000 horses.

Many more were also seriously wounded, with some injured soldiers left bleeding in agony on the battlefield while the brutal conflict continued around them - while others perished in makeshift triage units, which had been thrown together on the periphery of the site.

The battleground has since become a huge tourist attraction, and has also been dubbed one of the most haunted places in America.

Yuelling added: "I've heard people say you can catch videos of ghosts around there, but we were so skeptical until that night.

"I always questioned the validity of those ghost videos you see on TV, I was always pretty disbelieving.

"I believe everything now."
