How To Spot a Ghost in Gettysburg!

Solomon's Bridge located on Solomon Rd. right off of Taneytown Rd./Rt. 15.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, everybody likes to be scared.  Most people around Gettysburg have heard of Solomon’s Bridge.  More of a local legend than a widely known haunting, Solomon’s Bridge holds years of myth and wonder for ghost chasers.

On dark late nights, my friends and I would take a drive up to Solomon Rd. in Gettysburg.  Legend has it, if you park your car directly over the crack in the center of the bridge, turn off your car, put the windows up, close the vents, lock the doors, and put you car in neutral, something will happen.

A ghostly apparition of a woman will float over your car and your car won’t be able to start.  All of a sudden, you will feel your car rock back and forth as if somebody’s moving it.

My friends and I mustered up the courage to try it a few times. And it was a few times that my car wouldn’t start, and we felt the car move as if someone were pushing it.

One time in particular, my friend Brittany and I drove up to Gettysburg in her green Ford Probe on a chilly night.  We decided to check-out Solomon’s Bridge, just the two of us. So we did what we usually did, parked the car in the center of the bridge, shut everything off, just  like usual.

Well, we sat there for a few minutes and after nothing seemed to be happening, we were about to leave when all of a sudden we heard a knocking coming from the inside of the dashboard.

Brittany went to start her car up and turned the heat on when a beetle shot out of the passenger side vent and hit the window. We both screamed as Brittany hit the gas pedal, scurrying down the road in panic. All of a sudden, a huge beam of light came gleaming out of the woods and penetrated right through the window.

Swerving off the road, Brittany hit a bat, which left some excremate on the windshield by the way, and flew off into the night. One of the most scariest nights we have ever experienced at Solomon’s Bridge. I don’t believe we’ve been back there much since,.
