This is a very interesting and informative book and I am not a skeptic who ridicules or berates anyone who is a believer in ghosts and the paranormal. This book could possibly make a believer of even the most die-hard skeptics, and the authors have been able to prove their findings with hard evidence. I live in Pa, have been to Gettysburg many times, and have seen almost all the places described in this book. Believe me, there are GHOSTS IN GETTYSBURG!

You can tell this is a non fiction book. It is not written as a story but rather as many true occurrences. It definitely makes you want to experience these phenomenon for yourself. I have been to GETTYSBURG a few times myself and have definitely experienced the feelings of deep sadness at several areas. It is an eye opening experience. I would not doubt it to be inhabited by hundreds of lost souls still seeking their just peace. GOOD READING

I am sorry to say I am not impressed with this book and cannot recommend to others to read. I liked the background information about the battle but if you want to see photos taken of ghosts this is not the book for you. I do not call peoples experiences note worthy and want to see photos not someone telling a story or experience they had. So I am disappointed from this book. It was not what I expected after reading others reviews.

After reading this book I've thought long and hard about writing this review. I know that there are going to be many that do not agree with me---but--then that's what a review is all about---a personel opinion. The following is mine. These comments aren't in any certain order--just what comes to mind.

First--the title. Seems to me that the title and format of the book is an exact copy of the Mark Nesbitt "Ghosts of Gettysburg" series. Could it be that Oester is trying to cash in on the very popular Nesbitt books?? Is he counting on folks seeing the title and not paying attention to the author's name?

Next--mistakes. There a a lot of small mistakes that I can overlook but two of the ones that I can't are: The battlefield hours ARE NOT as he listed. The park does indeed close at 7pm during the winter season but is OPEN till 10pm during the summer. I would hate to see people miss out on night enjoyment of the park because of this book.
Next---the building behind the Lightner B&B is NOT a barn. It is the original CARRIAGE HOUSE. The big 3 story barn that was there during the battle was torn down in the 1950's.

Oester seems to believe that he knows it all for ghost hunting and is always right. You don't agree with him and he says you are WRONG!!! This is the same group that a few years ago were saying ALMOST ALL orb pictures were spirits. Now he's changed his mind. Could he also be wrong on some of his ideas today?? Those of us that have been paranormal investigators for a long time KNOW that it's not an exact science and we all must remain open to change!!!!!!

To always stress that he "was the first" to do this and this seems to be a turn off to me but then again--that's my opinion.

Lastly---I really found the book a bit boring after awhile--it seemed to drag in some spots.

Some time back Oeter was in a real tussel with those plumber guys over at TAPS. Saying they were in it just for the money. Hundres of dollars for IGHS courses seems to me to be for the money too!!!

Well--that's it. Now I know that I'm going to hear from a lot of folks that disagree with me and that's ok. Those of us at Gettysburg Paranormal Society think there more than enough room for everyone in this wide open field!!!

Thanks for reading this and please remember--IT'S JUST MY THOUGHTS!!!!!

Drs. Dave and Sharon Oester wrote a sensitive, compassionate book about the soldiers on both sides of the Civil War. They show great respect for the men who fought and died in the battle of Gettysburg and in the entire Civil War. They describe the paranormal experiences they had at different areas of the Gettysburg battlefield. There are also personal accounts of others who experienced
supernatural events there.

I enjoy stories of ghosts and things that go bump in the night. Have been to Gettysburg and you can feel the energy and know the death that happened there. A MOST interesting hallowed place and stories.

My wife and I are the founders of the LITTLE EGYPT GHOST SOCIETY - Southern Illinois. We have a strong interest in the paranormal and the Civil War. We purchased "Ghosts of Gettysburg: Walking on Hallowed Ground" and found it to be very interesting as well as informative. We have recommended this book to all members of the Little Egypt Ghost Society. I only wish I would have read your book before my trips to Gettysburg. I feel like I missed out on some really interesting things that I knew nothing of before reading this well written book.
Thank you Dave for your great book. I will miss you. God bless.
