Ghosts of Gettysburg still wander at site of Civil War's greatest battle

One needs a guide if ghost hunting in a place like this; somebody who can pick a clear target out of the tens of thousands who took part in the battle in 1863 that shaped the world we know today.
He is Ted Gajewski, retired steelworker and licenced battlefield guide, and a man who shares my passion for ghost hunting. He feels them. He tears up more than once as he tells of the epic three-day battle that was the beginning of the end for the dream of a Confederate States of America. For $55, he spends two hours giving a one-on-one tour of the huge battlefield site.
Example. He produces a ball of iron the size of a golf ball and explains it's a shot from a canister; a cannon shell much like a big shotgun shell. "They were fighting a war with old tactics against new technology," says Ted. "Imagine marching line abreast, shoulder-to-shoulder, standing upright, against a weapon like this -- deadly at 400 yards."
