I loved the background information on gettyburg and the listing of the sites by day. I wish the authors would have included information on what spirits supposedly haunt each sites or a listing of some of the types of experiences that have been there, along with their own stories. A Map of the various locations would have also been helpful.

More Gettysburg history than actual documentation of ghost sightings. Skip this one.
