Paranormal

Investigate the "Devils Hour" Some people consider 3am to be the spirit's time to communicate with us. Others think it's the devil's mark. Some even think that when you wake up at this time, someone is watching you. There are many superstitions for what 3am could be.



While you sleep soundly, you dream. While you dream, you are unaware of your surroundings. Unaware of what could be lurking in the closet, under your bed, beside you in your covers. Your eyes flutter open and you check the time on either your watch, cell phone, alarm clock, or simply whatever you have lying around that has the time displayed on it. But knowing the time doesn't really matter . . . right? You rub your eyes and blink a few times, adjusting to the darkness of your room.
After Dark Investigations

Adams County
Gettysburg, PA

717-420-5441 3 o'clock in the morning is when the little things come out to play. Want to see if all  of this is in fact true? Is the devil mocking the sign of the Trinity as Catholics suggest or a myth? Why do most people in nursing homes die between 3-4am? Is this a coincidence? Come out whlie Gettysburg sleeps and see if the devil is out there or at least a demon or two.... Do you dare? Use all of the normal paranormal equipment to bring them out and a few other tricks. Many people in Gettysburg say they have seen a thick mist that blankets the battlefield and some parts of town and people have seen soldiers walking in this mist. Come see if this is true. Whatever your curiosity, come out and find out what's hiding in the dark.

Sat 30 8:00pm Living History Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital As part of this year's continuing commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, “Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital" will be presented Saturday evenings in the nave of historic Christ Lutheran Church, 30 Chambersburg Street in Gettysburg.


More than 14,000 people have attended Songs and Stories over the past twelve years, enthusiastically endorsing these programs with comments such as, “ … one of the best experiences on our trip... You have managed to educate, provoke thought, and play on our emotions, all the while entertaining us.”
Historic Christ Lutheran Church

 30 Chambersburg Street  Gettysburg, Pa 17325
 

717-334-5212 Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital brings to life the true stories of a wounded soldier and the doctors and nurses who worked valiantly to save lives -- both Union and Confederate -- during the Battle of Gettysburg and the following weeks. The experiences of the wounded and their caregivers are presented through poignant readings from the journal of a wounded soldier and the diary of a citizen-nurse who served in this church hospital; through live Civil War-era music, especially the Civil War songs of Stephen Foster; and through the poetry of Walt Whitman, who served as a Civil War nurse for three years. Songs and Stories also includes passages from President Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address.

The music group "Folk and Friends," which is well-known and features the Stephen Folkemer family, will perform a variety of vocal and instrumental music from the Civil War era, and lead the audience in sing-alongs including the "Battle Hymn of the Republic"

Songs and Stories includes a brief history of Christ Lutheran Church, the oldest building in Gettysburg in continuous use for worship. Immediately on the first day of the Battle, this church was converted into a hospital, and it continued to care for the wounded and dying for five weeks. Songs and Stories will recount the slaying of Chaplain Horatio Howell on the church’s front steps on the first day of the Battle, and it will recount how a local African–American woman escaped her captors and hid in the church to avoid life as a slave.

Christ Church cordially invites the public to Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital. Period attire is encouraged, and light refreshments will be served. The church is air conditioned and accessible to all. There is no admission fee. Please visit the website  or call 717-334-5212 for further information.

Paranormal

Investigate the "Devils Hour" Some people consider 3am to be the spirit's time to communicate with us. Others think it's the devil's mark. Some even think that when you wake up at this time, someone is watching you. There are many superstitions for what 3am could be.



While you sleep soundly, you dream. While you dream, you are unaware of your surroundings. Unaware of what could be lurking in the closet, under your bed, beside you in your covers. Your eyes flutter open and you check the time on either your watch, cell phone, alarm clock, or simply whatever you have lying around that has the time displayed on it. But knowing the time doesn't really matter . . . right? You rub your eyes and blink a few times, adjusting to the darkness of your room.

717-420-5441 3 o'clock in the morning is when the little things come out to play. Want to see if all  of this is in fact true? Is the devil mocking the sign of the Trinity as Catholics suggest or a myth? Why do most people in nursing homes die between 3-4am? Is this a coincidence? Come out whlie Gettysburg sleeps and see if the devil is out there or at least a demon or two.... Do you dare? Use all of the normal paranormal equipment to bring them out and a few other tricks. Many people in Gettysburg say they have seen a thick mist that blankets the battlefield and some parts of town and people have seen soldiers walking in this mist. Come see if this is true. Whatever your curiosity, come out and find out what's hiding in the dark.
