History information is some background and history about the location. This is meant to be a basic summary. Below the history records you will find sources in which you can click on to find out more information. There may be multiple history records per location.

The "Grove" is the wooded area that surrounds the Gettysburg Warrior Football Stadium in the town of Gettysburg. This area saw several skirmishes during the battle due to it's closeness to East Cemetery Hill and the Union strong hold of cannons at the top of the hill. We have been on several ghost tours to this area and the stories are mostly similar, but there is always a different twist to the tales of things that have happened here. Please see the "stories" section for some of these reports.

Ghost Tour Interviews


Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.

One of the stories we heard from a ghost tour:

The night after Jenny Wade was killed, the Union soldiers who were friends with the Wades went looking for those who were responsible for her death. They came across the unit in this area and a very bloody and gruesome skirmish took place. This could of been the cause of the potential residual haunting that takes place within this area, with reports of strange noises, apparitions of soldiers, and cold spots throughout the area.

Another story from a Ghost Tour:

In this area, and under the football field itself, there is a mass grave that was just built over top of and left. This could just be a tale that is told during ghost tours.

Recent findings:

When researching for this post, we found that others have heard of the spirit of a young girl who roams the area as well. She is not a happy spirit and will make her self known that she does not want the living there.

Ghost in the grove at Gettysburg?
Added: 07/29/2019 By: sdonley
On July 4th, my fiancee Erin and I took a ghost tour to the Grove at Gettysburg. When we were there last year, our guide had told us to not enter the Grove. This time, the guide did allow us to enter. While in there, he told us of a story about a ghost that had been seen there recently. It was the spirit of a 13 year old girl named Elizabeth. She was a mentally disturbed girl who wandered away from home shortly after the war, traumatized by the fighting that had occurred there, and committed
