MASSACHUSETTS AREA PARANORMAL SOCIETY
JENNIE WADE HOUSE
If walls could talk they'd have plenty to say about the Jennie Wade House in Gettysburg, PA. Twenty year old Jennie's life was snuffed out during the Battle of Gettysburg. She was the only woman citizen killed in the battle. While baking bread for the Union troops in her sister's home, (which was between enemy lines) she was shot in the back. Bullets pierced two doors before striking and killing her. Many believe her spirit still haunts the house. Some have seen people in period clothing, figures who appear and disappear, faces in mirrors, children laughing, objects being moved around the house, the feeling of someone touching one's hair and the repetition of footsteps being heard along the route where Union soldiers carried her body to safety.
It was a dark and stormy night as members of the M.A.P.S. Team followed a ghost tour through the cozy Jennie Wade house. Batteries for our digital cameras were dying on a regular basis. We did capture one unexplainable photo which looked to us like the formation of a woman in period clothing possibly holding a loaf of bread in her hands. As people filed out of the basement at the end of the tour, we caught a faint voice on our EVP recorder which simply said "Good Night."
