Sharon and I recently went to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and stayed at a haunted bed and breakfast. For those of you who don't know, Gettysburg was the site of the bloodiest battle in the American Civil War and has become a hot spot for people ghost hunting. Not that we were there for that reason, but if we were gonna pay the same price to stay at the Econo Lodge then the prospect of seeing some restless souls was like a bonus deal. The place had become a hospital after the battle to treat the wounded so we thought the chances were high we might have an otherworldly encounter. That night we heard a lot of weird sounds, bits of conversations, and what sounded like boots walking across the hardwood floors just in front of the bed, but we weren't treated to any visuals. Not that I'm upset that I didn't wake up to a soldier's blood soaked face leaning over mine. I'd never live it down if I screamed like a girl.
