It is reported that two administrators had an experience with an elevator to another dimension. Instead of stopping at their desired floor, the elevator continued to the basement. When the door opened, they saw a thriving hospital scene, only without sound. Frightened, the two desperately finally managed to close the door just as one of the ghostly orderlies looked up and caught their terrified gaze.

  2. quit literally on the front lines of the first day of the battle., this was said to be where General Buford commanded his desperate bid to hold back AP Hill until Reynold’s infantry supported him.After Oliver’s corp collapsed it was where most of the fleeing federal and many chasing confederates passed by and there are many stories of the site. If anywhere in gettysburg was touched by a sense of mass fear and panic and determination, this was it.
