located on Seminary Ridge overlooking McPherson's woods where the first days
battle began. For more Battlefield photos and panoramic views please enjoy our
SLEEPY HOLLOW GHOST TOUR !
Begin your tour directly across the street from Gen. Lee's Headquarters.
Gaze out over the field at McPherson's Barn; stroll along the now quiet canopied path. Or ARE they now quiet and peaceful? Untimely
endings, regrets, and unfinished business leave Seminary Ridge in an unending march of spirits. Join us for our most in-depth tour;
walk the very ground where the battle began. Perhaps meet the men of the Iron Brigade, the wandering spirits of Iverson's men mowed
down in battle by Union troops they never saw, and maybe even hear the moans of the wounded echoing from the Seminary Hospital. Dare
to perhaps, feel, see or hear the unexplained at Gettysburg. Tours depart Thurs. - Sun. at 8:00, directly across from Gen. Lee's
headquarters, 401 Buford Ave. Eight dollars per person, children seven and under and are free (limit one per paying adult). No Bathroom
Facilities for this tour!
|The Battle Cam was hosted at the now demolished Gettysburg National Tower--read on to learn more about
the Tower. To see our movie clips of its demolition you'll need Quicktime. It's free, so if you don't have it, click the logo and come back
after the very easy installation!|

We are sad to announce that the "Battle Cam" will no longer be housed in Gettysburg Tower--we are including a direct quote from the letter that the United States Department of the Interior sent us:
"The United States Attorney has advised that a Declaration of Taking has been filed on May 17, 2000, which vests title in the United States of America to the Gettysburg Tower property within Gettysburg National Military Park.
"Our records indicate that you may have one or more cameras located on the Gettysburg Tower. The purpose of this letter is to inform you that it will be necessary for the NationalPark Service to obtain possession of the property, vacant and free of any cameras or personalproperty by June 2, 2000"
Feel free to email us at Tom with your thoughts or suggestions. We will be creating an archive of notable "Battle Cam" shots for you to enjoy. These will no doubt be the last of their kind, since it is public knowledge that the Tower will be demolished on July 3, 2000.
From the vantage point of the GettysburgNational Tower, the "Battle Cam"© overlooked some of the most notablelandmarks
of the actual battles at Gettysburg.
