Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Background History

Sach's Bridge is a great place for tourists to visit while in Gettysburg.   The covered bridge is one of Pennsylvania's
historic covered bridges which was used by both Union and Confederate troops during the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg
in 1863.    It was originally built in 1852 by David S. Stoner.   Part of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia began it's
retreat to Virginia by crossing this bridge after the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863.   The bridge extends 100 feet across
Marsh Creek and it is said that hundreds of confederate wounded soldiers died along the banks of the creek
after the great battle.

Many people believe the bridge and area to be quite haunted.   Full bodied apparitions, disembodied voices, cold spots
and people being touched have been reported on more than one occassion from Sachs Bridge. One ghost story told
about the bridge's haunted past includes three Confederate soldiers who deserted their unit, and were caught.   It's
believed that these three men were hung on this bridge as their punishment.
