I googled it and found the link from the GS website. Not saying I 100% am convinced it is paranormal, but based on what I've seen and experienced, it seems like the real deal.....especially with the "sparks" that you see every now and then...I see them a lot in very active places. As I remember, the people that took the video know/knew either Jim or Ghostmaster Jim, and they vouched for their reliability.

  Takes a while to load, but worth the wait.

That is amazing, but how do we know it isn't a bunch of people in the woods?

I do notice I saw one of the "ghosts" appear about 3 times doing the same thing. Interesting video.

If I remember right, there used to be a hill there back in the Civil War days. Now it's just a grove of trees, so whatever we are seeing is moving in the air/trees, there is no solid ground there any more. Yeah it repeats, so IMO if it is authentic, it's a residual playback of soldiers marching up a hill

Very cool video!
It does seem residual.  The figures are moving back and forth like they're on a path that goes up a small rise.  
The flashes of light are interesting, too!
The people recording it seem genuinely perplexed about what it is.  They mention motorcycles and people like they're trying to make it make sense.  Then the guy mentions it's in the trees and not on the ground!  Plus, the movement seems close enough that they should HEAR something, but it seems like they are just SEEING something.
I'd like to see a picture of that area in daylight to get a better idea of where the ground is in relation to the trees.
Looks real to me!

Wow great video, I was wondering why the figures appeared so high off the ground, thanks for the eroded hill explanation.

Yeah I only think a couple of ghost videos are real without a doubt. That video is one of them!

I can't get the video to load probably because this computer is to old and cranky for Windows media player to actually work,  but I think I know which one you are refering too -- and while the people who filmed it may be friends of Jim's,  and they may be totally honest,  I do believe they may be mistaken,  and really don't want to be told they are mistaken because they actually honestly believe they got something exiting on that clip.    I've asked several times "Where exactly in Gettysburg was that clip taken,  and have never gotten an answer.

"If I remember right, there used to be a hill there back in the Civil War days. Now it's just a grove of trees, so whatever we are seeing is moving in the air/trees, there is no solid ground there any more. Yeah it repeats, so IMO if it is authentic, it's a residual playback of soldiers marching up a hill."  
I'm really not trying to be a smart alec,  this is an honest question.  Do you know that for a FACT,  or is it just something you read online?  Have you actually been to Gettysburg?  Do you actually know the geography of the area?  Is the area that the "ghosts" are comming from actually not accessable to humans,  or is it someplace where the road actually loops around?  

I ask this because in approximately 300 trips to Gettysburg in the past 40 some odd years,  I have never heard of any place where there was a hill during the battle that is gone now.  Since the Battle happened on rolling farmland,  in the town itself,  on the grounds of the seminary,  and in the rocky areas near town,  it's hard for me to figure out where there could have been a hill that disapeared within 100 years.    I do however know of several areas where there are groves a trees grown up on the front  of hills,  so that the ground appears to be tree top level,  but that's because the trees are growning on lower ground -- not that the land has eroded away.  (Editied to add that withing the past 2-3 years they have done a great deal of battlefield restoration,  and gotten rid of lots of trees that weren't there during the battle,  and restored some of the trees that were (for the first time in at least 40 years there are tree's in the peach orchard,  and non at all on the slop of little foundtop as seen from Devil's Den.  



I do believe in ghosts, I believe Gettysburg is highly haunted,  I just question the geography of this particular clip.  Always gotta eliminate the obvious before I believe that something is paranormal.

If someone can find the original thread, more power to them...it may have disappeared when the board got hacked/purged.

far as the geography, I'm just repeating what I remember the thread/people who took the video said. So I can't say that is the case or not....I do remember in the original thread saying it looked like a projection of some sort in the trees. If someone wants to try and use the Internet Time Machine and find the original archived thread, go for it

I dunno.  The people talking about what they're seeing always sounded really scripted to me.lol - that link took a long time to upload, so i went to youtube and looked at it from there...becareful, because some of those links are screamer videos, which always gives me a heart attack!

Did the people who shot the video actually come in here to discuss it,  or is all the information secondhand?   I really don't remember them coming in,  all I remember was the usual group of people speculating.  But maybe I missed something.  Guess I need to do a search to see if I can come up with the original thread -- I do believe it was after the hacking.

I found it --
http://www.paranormalsoup.com/forums/index...urg+ghost+video.  This is the thread where someone a guest (who when I type the name the filter changes that name to "ghostmaster Jim" states that the people who shot the video were good friends of her and Jim,  and that they gave them the original video.  Several people asked for more information,  but none was ever forthcoming.  


and then a later thread
http://www.paranormalsoup.com/forums/index...0video&st=0
Where someone posts a link from a source other than ghost studies,  and the same Guest states she thought that ghoststudy had the exclusive to the video.

"Ghostmaster Jim" was (past tense) Jim's partner on the board, who really knew her stuff.

  I've always trusted her. The name filter thing is kinda screwy I know, guess now she is "she who must not be named"

As I said, the man and woman who took the video were on "MyGhostStory2" and on that video there were also hundreds of flashing lights, which were way too big to be fire flies. He felt it was gunfire. Seems things they did catch were all residual, but pretty cool. confused0068.gif

Was there some kind of reference point that showed how far the lights were away from the camera, so that their size could be accurately judged?
