Tourist's footage of 'ghost soldiers' running across road at Gettysburg is like a Halloween movie

Tourist's footage of 'ghost soldiers' running across road at Gettysburg is like a Halloween movie

The tourists claimed to see ghosts in the creepy clip

A lot of us might enjoy a good Halloween movie; ghosts, skeletons, villains, killers or jump scares.

But it’s unlikely anyone would hope to see one play out in real life.

Yet that’s pretty much what these tourists claim happened to them.


Visiting the historic Civil War battle site in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, they spotted a couple of two human-sized apparitions.

The creepy footage was captured by Greg Yuelling, who was visiting the famous battleground with his daughters and two of his uncles a few years back to soak up a bit of history.

However, the group ended up getting more than they bargained for when they seemingly stumbled across some ghosts making the most of the night – right out of a Halloween flick.

Yuelling, a store manager from New Jersey, said that one of his uncles was so spooked by the 'scary' experience that he rolled up the car window.

Honestly, don't blame him.

He then explained how he had been driving along the road at night when he and his family spotted 'figures moving in the darkness'.

Yuelling said the experience was incredibly 'scary'.

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 group were even more freaked out when they later watched the Halloween-like footage.

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 as 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."
