That former Ranger has a whole series of booklets about the ghosts of Gettysburg, I am told. Yes, you are right. It is called 'Iverson's Pits' at the Forney Farm. I was told by a former Park Ranger now living in town that the Ranger's still avoid going near that area after nightfall. He said he often felt a cold chill in his body whenever he went out there. I told him we will have to investigate this, for historical purposes, of course. I am thinking if we go out there after dark in period uniforms and candle lanterns, the spirits might be more inclined to make contact. But to be safe, I suppose it will have to be Confederate uniforms and we should bring along some coffee beans and tobacco. Of course, anyone seeing us out there after dark in uniform will suppose that we are the ghosts. lol. I will remember your advice about Lee's HQ Motel on Seminary Ridge. If you ever decide to come to one of our LBHA Conferences, I hope you consider doing so as a reenactor. We'd love to have you along in our mess -- Strange, that goes for you too.
