Our Tours   –   Aftermath   ~   Irish of Gettysburg   ~   Women of Gettysburg


After the battle,
Gettysburg was a picture of desolation,
devastation and death
in its ghastliest and most abhorrent form.

Preparing skeletons for proper burial

Many soldiers lay dead, while the town was polluted with a sickening, disgusting stench that could be smelled for miles.

A first-hand account states it was the most disgusting atmosphere he’d ever breathed – and thought it impossible for human beings to live.

There are dozens of tours in Gettysburg that describe the battle and the paranormal.

But there is only one tour company that brings the REAL Horrors of War to life – The Grave Digger Tours.

Follow our “diggers” as they take you on an unforgettable experience recalling eyewitness accounts of the soldiers and citizens who had to clean up the mess of 8,000 dead soldiers, 27,000 wounded – and over 5,000 dead horses.

We offer these walking tours through the historic back streets and alleys of Gettysburg ~

Our tours run most nights from April 1st through mid-November.

We also run tours during the off-season and by special appointment – weather permitting.
