Over the past 60 yrs, I have been involved in taking part in various Civil War battles as what are referred to as reenactors. We "act" as soldiers from various states, both Union  and Confederate, dress in period clothing, ranging fro simple to elaborate. Depending on how much money one  is willing to invest to fully "play the part". Almost every Civil War battlefield is involved. Some are famous, others are simply "footnotes" in discussing the "war".I started when I was 7, along with m parents, g. father and g, mother, from both sides of my parent families. I have found out that I  had 14 men, "cousins" if you will, that joined from North Carolina to serve. Most joined simply to get off the farms and from letters sent home thought it was a "grand adventure"and would not last more than a year, at best, or so they thought. Some surrendered in April, 1865, along with the Army of Northern Virginia, commanded by General Lee. Others fought at a small North Carolina town called Bentonville against a Union army commanded by General Sherman, later in 865. All 14 made it back, worn out and road weary but all didn't loose arms or legs after 4years of fighting. I have visited the battlefields, time an again, and have witnessed "events", "spoke with "persons" from 1863 who simply could not have existed now. Antietam battlefield has a  spot called"Bloody Lane" that is quite uncomfortable to me, physically a "mentally. Fredericksburg has its own"haunted sites" on the battlefield as well as in town. The same can be said of Gettysburg."Ghosts" are simply out, about everywhere, town included. Bentonville as well as Fort Fisher, have their own "fair share" of  "unexplained happenings". Put simply, ALL are"haunted" to one degree or another. Having witnessed events, had personal contact with "whatever"," ghosts", if you will, that I cannot explain, in anyway, that makes sense to anyone unless they have experienced something like I had on numerous occasions. Visit these locations, no promises you will experience what I have had but then again you might. Good luck.

Very cool,  You are really lucky to actually stand on the hollowed ground where many brave men fought and died.  I hope to get to see some of the history there myself some day.  I would love to see some of your pictures Dressed in your period clothing.

I love visiting civil war battlefields. I go to Gettysburg probably once a month and just recently been to Antietam. Its amazing to me the difference in the two areas. Every time I go to Gettysburg I always hear a new paranormal story. I can't say I have heard to much about Antietam but would love to hear the stories if anyone was to have any.

As to visiting Civil War battlefields, strongly encourage it, darn near been going to them for about 60 yrs, and I seldom go any place more than once, well when younger that choice was not an option, but I suggest you decide on a particular battlefield and  read  up on it, so you may appreciate more what you will be seeing. BTW , try going in the Spring or Fall as the weather is cooler an the "tourist" have lessen in number. Good luck.

Closest thing I've gotten to see to a battlefield is where we had the playground riots of 79.  If you dig deep enough in the bark and sand you can still find torn remnants of pocket protectors and lunchbox shrapnel. :crazy:

The above comment I can appreciate and certainly have been there when various men I knew went to meet their "Maker" not a few seconds after I had looked at them...now that will make one think "glad it wasn't me over there". Feel guilty about that? Not on your life.

Nice to see that somebody reads what I post. I have my doubts at times.

I don't hang around here as often as I should,  but when I do I read a lot.  

On the subject of civil war battlefields,  I've been to gettysburg more times than I can count,  and have had experiences since I was a teen,  but it's never scared me enough to make me stay away.   Cold Harbor is the only civil war battlefield that has even made me not ever want to go back -- and it's not exactly fear of the ghosts,  I think it's the feeling of pain and fear that has permiated the place.

Wish all who plans to visit any Civil War battlefield this year, fair weather, a safe drive to and from their home, and good weather at each site. Take care and I suggest that some reading is done prior to visiting any one site. I have found it makes the visit more enjoyable.

Went back to Gettysburg two weekends ago. This time mostly as more of just a getaway. I couldn't go without investigating one night. I ended up at The Grove. This is a place I have investigated many times. Every time I go there I always would get some kind of feeling almost as if there is an electricity in the air. I can honestly say on the night I went this time it just seemed to be so calm. I got nothing on the K2 nor on the recorder I was carrying. Just complete calm. It was almost peaceful and I don't regret it one bit. It was a nice change. Someone once told me one of the most peaceful places at times can be on an old battlefield.

The reason I share this story even though I didn't find anything is though they say how active Gettysburg can be. It can also be a place of complete calm and a good time to reflect as you try to imagine what all went down in that area 152 years ago.

Shawn - I know you had a great time! As you are well aware this is certainly on my list of things to do before the end of 2015!!! I am glad you got to experience calm in such a place. WOW! I am even more excited now:)

Am very familiar with the cemetery in Beaufort, as I have a second home at Atlantic Beach. Quaint little cemetery, sorta tucked away, and I find few visitors to the ocean front area seem to take time to visit that historic location and read some of the comments on the headstones.

Looks like I had a small change of plans for my 4th of July and I will be heading out to Gettysburg. Hopefully I can bring back something cool for you all to check out. The reenactment will once again fall on the same days as the actual battle. Perhaps there will be plenty of trigger objects around. Not sure what areas I will be investigating yet. I plan on making my list tonight.
