Ghost Filmed at Gettysburg

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Creepy

When it comes to ghosts, I remain a hardcore skeptic. When you grow up in a house with genuine ghosts(I should do a story on this.), you tend to dismiss almost all so-called encounters. Even paranormal investigators will tell you 99.9% of the time. It is not ghost-related. The way our minds work, if a person wants to see something paranormal, they will find it; even if nothing is there. So I want to get into the latest viral video because it was filmed at a hotbed of paranormal activity. 

With that in mind, what's your personal take on the provocative video? 

Here is the backstory. Greg Yuelling and his family were visiting the notoriously haunted Civil War battlefield at Gettysburg. He captured footage of what he believes to be a pair of ghosts running near some cannons. The spooky encounter reportedly transpired earlier this month at the historic site in Pennsylvania. 


"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. 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."

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 to get a closer look. Perhaps the most unnerving aspect of Yuellling's incredible tale is that, after he got home, he got this eerie, ominous feeling, like something was telling me to go back to the battlefield. However, the possible sighting was so unsettling that he could not muster the necessary courage to return to the historical site. Noting he had previously been skeptical of alleged ghost videos, Yuelling conceded that he sincerely believes everything now. 


While that may be the case, not everyone is sufficiently convinced that Yuelling's video actually shows any apparitions. Skeptical observers(like myself) argue the 'ghosts' who so frightened him were a trick of gleaming light and shadow. The 'ghost' was produced by the light from his car reflecting off the cannons and or distorted by the water(or condensation fog) on his windshield. Considering how impactful the unique experience was for Yuelling, I would wisely say he would beg to differ in our assessment.
