Mark Nesbitt, Author, The Ghosts of Gettysburg Series

 

By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh

Mark Nesbitt was born in Lorain, Ohio, and graduated from Baldwin-Wallace College with a BA in English Literature. He worked for the National Park Service as a Ranger/Historian for five years and then became a Licensed Battlefield Guide. His job with the National Park Service provided him not only the opportunity to spend time in all of the historic buildings located in the Gettysburg National Park, but actually to live in four of the historic houses. Living in Gettysburg since 1971 has provided him with a unique “insider” perspective.

I first became aware of Author Mark Nesbitt when he appeared on Coast To Coast AM With George Norry July 26th, 2004. Nesbitt shared many interesting well told stories of ghosts and apparitions seen in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania which was host to the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, where approximately 50,000 soldiers lost their lives over a 3-day period. Curiously, even before the battle in 1863, a ghostly visitation of George Washington leading an army was seen on the site, he also noted.

Nesbitt a true paranormal investigator offered several of his own interesting theories as to why Gettysburg is one of the most haunted places in America.

" Because their deaths were so sudden, many of the soldiers may not have realized they died." Said Nesbitt. "Additionally, since they were in the throes of war against their own countrymen they may fear facing "judgment" in crossing over." "Thirdly, Gettysburg's geology contains a lot of quartz rock which is thought to capture electricity which could facilitate paranormal occurrences."

"A lot of the haunting phenomena are auditory rather than visual, said Nesbitt, who described reports where "volleys of gunfire were heard in the woods." " EVP's recorded in the area sometime take the form of "an angry growl," rather than specific words, he said. With the sightings of apparitions, Nesbitt commented that 40-45% of them actually occurred during daylight hours."

I was so impressed with his great interview I decided to travel to Gettysburg and check it out for myself. I took the The Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours®. And I was never more impressed on how well it was presented. And also the many reactions from those on the walk with me as they stated that they felt the actual ghosts touching them.

Of all the forlorn, countless souls awash in time, none reach out to us more than those of the dead at Gettysburg. They were young men, mostly, with hopes for a bright future and moved by sincere patriotic dreams, caught up and cruelly thrown down again, in the great, hot whirl of mortal combat.

 

I would have to say in all honesty this was the most haunted and paranormal active ghost tour I have ever taken in the United States to date. And I can certainly recommend it to everyone who visits the area. Make sure that this Tour is the one that you take. The actual Ghost Of Gettysburg ghost tour Headquarters is also a very haunted location to visit and check out. Located at 271 Baltimore Street at Breckenridge Street. You certainly won't be disappointed if you explore this location. Take along a camera and a digital voice recorder. Real captured EVP's and Ghost Photos happen in the building all the time.

Nesbitt also offers many tours that are sure to peek the interest of any Paranormal Researcher or novice Ghost Hunter. I suggest you take the time and take each of his remarkable tours you won't be in anyway at a loss for experiencing what real Haunted Gettysburg is all About.

Over the years since the battle, stories of scores of sightings, stranger than reality, have emerged from the quaint houses and gentle fields in and around the town of Gettysburg: Stories of sightings of these soldiers, moving again in battlelines, across the fields where they once marched. . . and died; tales of visions through a rip in time into the horrible scene of a Civil War hospital; whispers of a look at men long dead held eternally captive by duty. These apparitions -and more- come back to remind us, in one way or another that they are not to be forgotten for what they did here. . .

In research for his books, Mark Nesbitt collected hundreds of these tales of the unexplainable sightings, entity activity or those strange echoes from a time long gone that can mean only one thing: Gettysburg may very well be, acre for acre, the most haunted place in America.

Now, armed with tales from these ghost books - and with a few that aren't in the books - knowledgeable guides will take you on your choice of several evening tours through sections of town that were bloody battlefields 13 decades ago; through night-darkened streets to houses and buildings where it's not as quiet as it should be; to sites on the old Pennsylvania College campus where the slain once lay in rows, and the wounded suffered horribly, waiting to become corpses themselves; to cemeteries where the dead lie. . . sometimes not so peacefully.

She dressers in ceremonial robes, draws magical circles on the floor and commands spirits from Heaven, Hell and all places in between to appear before her and communicate with the living. As a teenager she studied heavily The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish and The Grand Grimoire by A.E Waite, the Malleus Maleficarum and anything she could get her hands on by the great by Eliphas Levi, John Dee and the great beast, Aleister Crowley. www.ghosthuntersofamerica.com

Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

She then Got involved with the local Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new doors where opened to her concerning communicating with the dead.

Waugh was baptized and trained in the secret dark religion by Bianca The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Waugh lived in New Orleans for 3 years until she learned all about spells, hex's and how to hoodoo voodoo people as she says.

Waugh also owned and managed the fantastic Candle Making Company in Galveston, Texas for many years that catered to the eclectic patrons taste of many of the states visitors and just curious. She then moved to Houston's Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This now where she resides to this day. Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy and her new found religion of Voodoo Hoodoo.

Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of Hell, Heaven and all places in between. Waugh has a large home one room she has painted black where she calls the good spirits. Another painted all black where she calls the infernal spirits.

Waugh is often compared today in her facial features and many similar practices as being a modern Dr. John Dee. He of course was one of the most fascinating characters of the Elizabethan period just as Waugh is recognized as such in modern times. The events of Dee's life are filled with science, experiments, astrology and mathematics which he aligned with magic, the supernatural and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's personal passion and driven honest beliefs. These are also stead fast traditions she does and true in practicing openly. A few of her select followers say she is the actual reincarnation of John Dee. Waugh also practices astrology, and is very continuously studying the Black Arts.

Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal does not comment on any of this privately or publicly ... for she is humble in her paranormal studies and research to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend of her's relates: "Waugh is a very outgoing friendly, charming and a downright loveable person, and gets along equally well with the living and the dead." Lanier and Waugh once investigated a real Haunted Texas Federal Prison together for close to two years in the early 1990's and had many startling paranormal adventures while there.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments have been achieved through hard work, persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude required to overcome obstacles and reach difficult goals. Waugh shares her approach to communicating with the dead's success in this motivational performance that's sure to inspire Paranormal Investigators to excel in their life.
