For a short time in 2008, I was living with my cousin Chris, and we decided to produce a show called SoulTrackers Live. The show would follow us around, and at the time of showing the episode, we would be chatting it up with viewers and enjoying the hunt! The first episode was filmed at Reynolds Woods in Gettysburg, PA.
Doing the filming was an absolute blast! We had some friends come out with us to investigate a great location from the Civil War battle. Reynolds Woods is a historic site that is part of the Gettysburg National Military Park. The woods were named after Major General John F. Reynolds, a Union commander who was killed in the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. During the battle, the woods were the site of a fierce fight between Union and Confederate forces.
The woods were also the site of the famous Pickett's Charge, a failed Confederate assault on the Union lines. Today, the woods are a popular destination for visitors to the Gettysburg National Military Park, offering a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the town. Visitors can explore the woods, take in the history of the battle, and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
During the investigation, we didn’t capture much evidence from Reynold’s Woods, but we did get some incredible results from the Railroad Cut located across the highway. The Railroad Cut in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, holds a significant place in American history due to its role in the Battle of Gettysburg. The battle took place from July 1-3, 1863, during the American Civil War. This unfinished railroad excavation, which was part of the Gettysburg and Harrisburg Railroad, became an unexpected strategic location during the battle.
On the first day of the conflict, Union forces under the command of General John Buford and General John Reynolds attempted to hold their ground against the advancing Confederate forces led by General Henry Heth. The Railroad Cut provided a natural defensive position for the Union troops, who used it as a makeshift trench to repel the Confederate assault. However, the Confederates eventually managed to flank the Union forces, forcing them to retreat through the town of Gettysburg and regroup on Cemetery Hill.
During our investigation of this area, we experienced the coolest thing. It occurred toward the end of our investigation. While standing on the railroad tracks, we thought there was a train coming. The whole cut lit up as if a train was barreling down the tracks toward us. However, before our eyes, the light diminished and dissolved away. Coincidence? I don’t think it was.
The other episode we did was about a cemetery outside of Gettysburg. Our investigation of this area yielded little paranormal evidence, so we thought outside the box. We took an old 2002 recording of me doing training at a cemetery and put it all together! It’s interesting and informative, especially when it’s from over 20 years ago! Again, I must reiterate what I have said numerous times.
Please do NOT investigate cemeteries! I was very young and quite dumb, therefore completely unaware of the spiritual dangers I and my team opened ourselves to.
In these above recordings, I was walking around with a team in NJ, filming various aspects of how investigative equipment in that time frame functioned. A blast from the past!
