The Ghost Hunter’s Field Guide

Gettysburg & Beyond

By Mark Nesbitt

“Of all the forlorn, countless souls awash in time, none reach out to us more than those of the dead at Gettysburg.”

— Mark Nesbitt, author of the Ghosts of Gettysburg series

Mark Nesbitt, author of the best-selling Ghosts of Gettysburg book series recently won two national awards for his six-volume collection of tales of paranormal happenings on the battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, site of the 3-day Civil War battle.

What is a ghost? What makes Gettysburg such a haunted venue? Where does one go in Gettysburg to find a ghost? The quest for answers to these questions, and countless others, is the driving force behind why so many travel to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in search of their own paranormal experience.

 

In The Ghost Hunter’s Field Guide: Gettysburg & Beyond, renowned ghost story author, historian, and paranormal investigator, Mark Nesbitt, explores the world of the paranormal, focusing on the town of Gettysburg and the infamous battlefields that surround it.

The first half of the book delves into the history and phenomena of “ghosts,” reviews generally accepted paranormal theories, discusses best “ghost hunting” practices, and presents the reader with plausible explanations as to why paranormal activity is so prevalent in Gettysburg.

 

The second half of the book addresses the actual paranormal investigation. Designed to be used in the field, the town of Gettysburg and the battlefield are divided into six sections. The reader is provided with historical information, photos, maps, driving directions, and paranormal investigative tips and techniques unique to each geographic area. Experienced and amateur “ghost hunters” alike will profit from the advice and guidance offered in this one-of-a-kind book.

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. During his tenure with the National Park Service, he had the opportunity to spent time in nearly every historic house on the Park and actually lived in four of the historic homes. Living in Gettysburg since 1971 has given him a unique “insider” perspective from which to write this book.

Mr. Nesbitt published the first book in the popular Ghosts of Gettysburg series in 1991. The Ghosts of Gettysburg Series received the National Paranormal Award for “Best True Hauntings Collection” and “Best ‘Local Haunt’ Guidebook.” The Ghosts of Gettysburg stories have been seen, and/or heard, on The History Channel, A&E, The Discovery Channel, The Travel Channel, Unsolved Mysteries, and Coast to Coast AM.
