Apparition In the Triangular Field Gettysburg

by Ruth
(from Pa.)

This is a photo of the gate entrance at the Triangular Field. It is one of the most haunted areas of the Gettysburg battlefield. If you are not familiar with this field you can do a search on the Ghost of Gettysburg Triangular Field.

This picture was taken Jan. 3rd, 2003 using a Kodak Easy Share digital camera. It was a very mild winter day, so I decided to take a trip to the Gettysburg battlefield with my daughter and son. We live very close to Gettysburg.

We decided to visit the Triangular Field but nothing really seemed out of the ordinary that day. We were the only people there. After walking around a bit we left, and I took this picture after we got out of the field.

It's of the gate area looking into the Triangular Field. To the left side of the gate where the stone wall dips..look down the field towards the woods. I see an apparition of a man walking towards the woods and I also see a big face of a man in front of the trees to the left side of that big boulder. The trees right behind that look mighty strange too. I showed this picture to others and they can see it too.

This was zoomed in and cropped from the original photo so you can see it better. I'd like to know if you can see what I'm seeing.

The Face
by: Anonymous

The big face had to be the glare from the sun and a gap in the canopy I am unable to see the man walking into the forest

I was up in Gettysburg last Saturday around 6PM and this area and Devil's Den was packed with people. Wonder how many ghost sightings there were. I am going up again tomorrow night.

There are multiple faces in the top of the trees, large faces. There are also two soldiers in blue unforms standing at the left and right of the photo at the base of the trees.

A Full Battle
by:

A full out battle is what I see. In the back there is actually cannons (two) and there are soldiers too, one has either died or is dying. You conviced my teacher!(hard to do) we all see the man, but you actually caught full figures in battle! The arrow is pointing at a cannon ball that has been fired and the smokey look in the trees is the smoke from the cannons. Thanks for sharing it!

It's a full battle!
by: Megan

I've seen this picture before. I do see the man on the hill, but what you think is a face on the left, is actually a cannon, theres 2 cannons in this picture, and what looks like the nose at a distance is actually another soldier firing the cannon and right on the hill literly right next to the hill is a soldier that has either died or is dying, all the people are soldiers, and the smokey trees are the smoke coming from the cannons. The arrow even looks like it's pointing directly at what i think is a cannon ball that has already been fired. Everyone in my Civil War class saw this picture and we discussed it for at least 30 minutes trying to figure out what was in the picture. My teacher who is a real critic on ghost and spirits even thought this was amazing. We all including our teacher, came to the same thought, you caught a full out battle going on! Way to go on convincing our teacher!

I've seen this picture in school learning about the Civil War
by: Megan Jungnitsch

I looked closely at the picture, and I do see the man in the center, but what the big face on the left really is, a cannon. I've actually seen this picture before, and if you look a little closer, behind the soldier, there is another cannon, and the arrow that is in the second picture might be pointing a the actual cannon ball being fired out. When you say the trees look weird, my friends and I think its the smoke from the cannons, looks like to me you caught a part of the battle. I've learned so much about Gettysburg and the Civil war, that I know it's the soldiers, still fighting.

Can't see......
by: Paul

Sorry, can't see any ghost in your picture.
Last year, I took several 10 second exposures facing the Sachs Bridge with not one orb or any other objects just solid black negatives.

While at the bridge, a young couple took some pictures and they swore they both saw a ghost!
Then, I've always been a skeptic so maybe they just don't 'expose' themseves to me.

I'll try again in November while attending the Remembrance Day and head for the Trianguler Field with my D90.

Paranormal activity " Yes"
by: Charles Guenther

As a Paranormal investigator with the Pennsylvania Paranormal Investigations.we are located In Harrisburg Pa, I looked at your picture and I can tell you I have been all over the different part's of the battlefield. And what you have is a very good picture.But you will always have skeptics out there.We face the same situations when we do investigations. Keep on taking picture's because that is your proof of what you actually saw.If on your next visit if possible use a DVD camera.

Orbs?
by: Deano

It's amazing how so many people can stare at this photo and come up with a different view! I just think the quality of the photograph is very poor and distorted to the point that some are "seeing" lots of things that are not even there. If we keep this photo posted for a bit longer, I'm sure that others will "find" other orbs as well.
Sorry for being negative but let's face it....we can pick apart alot of grainy pics to depict what we think are orbs. I have many photos with "orbs" in them but I believe it has to do with the camera, lighting or dust.

hmmm
by: tracy

I'm not sure what I see. There appears to be something transparent there, near the bottom left and more toward the right is something much taller.
If I stare at anymore ghost pics, I'll lose my eyesight. I've no doubt there are spirits there, with all those horrific and tragic deaths that occurred. It's sad to think that the souls of those men may be confused and wandering the earth rather than moving on. I hope it's just residual energy.

Last Week in Gettysburg
by: Deano

I was in Gettysburg last week and took a series of pictures and actually got a little excited after seeing a photo I took near the Pickett's Charge area. I saw what appeared to be an orb in one of the photographs. After seeing several more with the orb in the same place I soon realized that it was a rain drop on the lens. What a bummer!

Hard to say...BUT
by: Bob

Hard for me to say if what i see is simply my brain trying to fit the images into an accepted structure or of something is really there. I am well aware of this field and recently took a few pics at night with very subtle orbs (not the numerous big bright ones which clearly are dust reflected in the flash).

I will post here once I can get the pics online. There is something in the field

Gettysburg Visit
by: Katie

My fiance and I visited Gettysburg on November 8th and 9th, 2008. I took a ton of pictures. When I got home and put them on my computer, I was both shocked and amazed that almost EVERY picture has figures in them. It was warm that weekend, but uncrowded. I captured everything from a glowing soldier atop a horse, to a little boy with a drum, to lines of soldiers in gray-blue uniforms coming up Little Round Top, to a line of misty figures with heads bowed at the North Carolina monument. (Using a Canon PowerShot A520 digital camera)

There are blurred mists and hazes in all of the pictures (225 of them) and the day was perfectly clear and sunny. I am still amazed at the clarity of the images I caught.

Gettysburg Visits
by: Dean

I've visited Gettysburg 3 times in the last 10 days to take pictures all over the battlefields. You name it, I've been there. So far, none of my pictures have revealed anything paranormal related...at least that I can tell. Not even an orb. I recently went to Sachs Bridge which has a history of sightings, etc. It was a bit eerie being there alone. I took video and stills. While I was there, a family of 3 drove up, got out of the car and started over the bridge but did an abrupt about face and went back to the car and sped off. That seemed odd to me. They took the time to drive there, then disappeared after being there for about a minute. More to report later.

My Visit
by: Anonymous

I was just up in Gettysburg last weekend and took a ghost tour. I must say, it was very good. And although I'm more of a skeptic about ghost sightings, I did photograph something strange and unusual while taking the tour. Now I've never been to the Triangular Field before (I don't think) but I plan to visit this coming Monday (11/3/08). I will be taking some pics. Any tips on other areas that report a high probability of ghostly apparitions?

I see 2 ghosts
by: Anonymous

Another ghost you cut off with your circle. You have his head and chest circled but the not the rest of his body because you looking in the trees. Look about 1 inch to the left of the post in your first picture and youll see a full ghost standing there. He also has another ghost walking towards him. Look about an inch from the left side of your first picture and I see the other ghost standing sideways, walking towards the other ghost. I think I see another ghost between those two, but I can only make out its face, not the body.

Ghosts?
by: GrayReb

Hi, Ruth. Took another closer look at your photo. Did you notice if there were houses back there in the woods? I can clearly see a few houses when I zoom in closely. To the right is where I see the apparition of a man in a dark uniform, a woman in long dress and another man in a white shirt and dark trousers standing by a tree. Amazing that we can all look at the same photo but have different interpretations.

Apparition Photo
by: GrayReb

When I used Windows Picture and Fax viewer to zoom in, I distinctly saw a figure with a white top and dark trousers. He looks like he's peaking around the tree. After closer scrutiny, I spotted another figure to the left of him with an all dark uniform, wearing a hat, and a third figure sitting down(?)in between the two of them or leaning against a rock in what appears to be a long, dark, full dress(?) Now, you've got me curious. Does anybody else see what I think I see?

by: Ruth

I'm glad that worked for you GrayReb. I don't see anyone wearing white shirts and dark pants in my photo though. And there was absolutely no living person in the field when I took that photo. If there had been, I would have said that.

In my circle I see a shape of a man that is slightly transparent and not fully formed. He is missing a leg or perhaps it just wasn't formed yet when the photo was taken. He was the first image I found when I first looked at my photo. I followed the white streak that lead right into him.

Still in the circle in front of the trees, there is a tall stalk of weeds and I see a large face right beside that. And many forms and faces I see in the trees that I don't have circled.

I'm not trying to convince anyone or make up a story about this photo. What would I have to gain from that? Either people can see what I'm seeing or they can't. Simple as that. I'm just curious as to how many other people can see these images.

I have taken many photo's at the Gettysburg Battlefield over the years, and the only photo's I have with strange images are the 2 that I listed on this website...both taken the same day at the Triangular Field. And I have studied all my other photo's carefully. So I know it's not my imagination.

Triangular Field Apparition

Thanks Ruth. I did what you suggested. I can see faint outlines of a couple of people; they all seem to have white shirts and dark pants, and don't seem to be wearing uniforms, though. Not yet convinced they're apparitions; tourists walking around perhaps?

If you have Windows Picture & Fax Viewer it will enlarge the photo. You can right click to save photo in your pictures. Then after the photo is saved in your pictures, right click the photo again and choose Open With..Windows Picture & Fax Viewer. It has a magnifier you can use to really enlarge photos. I don't know if you have that, but if you do it works great.

Hope you can see what I'm seeing. Also study the trees. There are images and faces in the trees that I didn't point out. Maybe not everyone can see this, but I know I do and a few others see it too.

I was at the Triangular Field in January of 2006 and was trying out a my new Kodak digital camera...Shooting blindly, I too, found images of faces in the pictures I took...and some looked like soldiers from the period.

WOW!! I can see SEVERAL eerie forms! This is SO cool!

Where you have it circled - I can clearly see a man walking! And to the left of him - with a magnifying glass you can see the white form of a man sitting. But, straight on, up in the trees - is a very large face?!

I just wonder - when you're at that field - can you "feel" them there?! I've heard people say they can smell them, or hear them, at times.
Ah, not me! I'll just stay home and read about it!
