A Few Experiences – Gettysburg & Allison Park : A Fan Story

A Few Experiences

By Kelley Bittner

So I’ve actually had a few experiences that really stand out to me.

The first was this past summer in Gettysburg.  We were walking through the National Cemetery and all of a sudden, out of nowhere I felt very sad and sick at the same time.  This feeling was overpowering and I just needed to sit for a while to gather myself.  It’s hard to explain the feelings that overcame me but it’s as if I felt all of those soldiers pain and grief at the exact same time.  Needless to say, I got out of that area as quickly as I could.

Where I grew up, in Allison Park, PA, my family and I visited the Depreciation Lands museum nearby regularly. This museum was so popular that our girl scout troop would even stay the night on occasion.  However, it was right next to a cemetery.  The first time I saw something I thought I was half asleep.  There were shadows that would move across the open yard of the cemetery.  The next time I spotted these shadows, I knew I was awake – it was the middle of the day!  At that exact moment, I felt cold and just a feeling as if I was being watched. Even though I had wonderful times there, I refuse to go back.

  1. Wish I’d realized Gettysburg was so haunted, on a visit there many years ago. I would have paid closer attention to the paranormal, as well as the historic aspects.
