A couple of weeks ago, I posted a link to an article about the fall-out between the Gettysburg National Military Park and the licensed tour guides. Now another issue has developed, this one involving ghosts. . .It appears that there will be some kind of paranormal summit here in Gettysburg on Friday, June 13, 2008, involving more than 500 investigators/ghost hunters. The guy who orchestrated this event--through myspace.com--did so without realizing that organized ghost hunting is prohibited on the battlefield, and most certainly after dark. Now he is upset, and is searching for a new place--besides the battlefield proper--to hold this ghost summit.http://www.eveningsun.com//ci_8091292?IADID
With the new visitor center opening in April, and with these issues with tour guides and ghost hunters, it seems that Gettysburg certainly has its hands full.
