The following interview was done in regards to a very interesting video that has been circulating the internet for the last few years. The ghosts of Gettysburg. This video might be some of the best visual evidence of that ghosts exist.
I wrote a short article on the video that you can read Here .
I’ve been trying to reach the Underwoods for quite some time now. It wasn’t until last month that I finally tracked down an email address in which someone responded. It was Delia Underwood. She was present at the time of the filming and witnessed these lights. To my surprise, the History’s Channel new show called MonsterQuest beat me to the Underwood’s and managed to get a roughly put together account of what happened that day.
Here is the quick interview I did with Delia Underwood: (note: due to Delia’s busy schedule, she managed to only give me a short interview. This is the raw text, not edited)
GT: Delia, I’d like to thank you for taking time for this interview for GhostTheory.com. There has been a lot of talk and speculation of the your “Gettysburg ghost images” video.
Can you start by telling us the exact date (even time of day) this event happened?
DU: IT WAS IN THE EVENING OF OCTOBER 2001.
GT: In a paragraph or two, can you explain to us how the events transpired?
DU: MY HUSBAND AND I WOULD GO TO GETTYSBURG EVERY WEEKEND TO DO FILMING AND TAKING PICTURES IN HOPES OF GETTING SOMETHING ON FILM. WE JUST WENT ON THIS PARTICULAR DAY/EVENING AND WE SET UP THE VIDEIO CAMERA AFTER WE DECIDED WHERE. WE AIMED IT DOWN THE FIELD TOWARD THE FLAT ROCK, THEN WE JUST STARTED TO FILM IN HOPES OF GETTING SOMETHING.
GT: Who’s voices do we hear in the video, and did they all see the lights?
DU: YOU HEAR MY VOICE, MY HUSBAND TOM AND MY SON JUSTIN. WHAT LITES ARE YOU REFERING TOO?
IF YOU MEAN AT THE BEGINING, YOU COULD SEE THEM TO THE NAKED EYE AND ON THE VIDEO. THEY LOOK LIKE GUNFIRE IN RAPID FIRE. THEN I SAW THE FIGURES AND SHOWED MY HUSBAND.
GT: To your best recollection, what is the location where the lights were witnessed?
DU: THE LIGHTS WERE NEAR A BUSH ABOUT 15FT FROM THE FLAT ROCK.
GT: In your own words, can you describe for us the lights that you saw? Did it look like the lights just dissipated? did they have any shape or figure to them? any sounds?
DU: NO SOUNDS
THE LIGHTS OR FIGURES TO ME WERE OF SOILDERS MARCHING UP IN THE TREES, IT ONLY LASTED A FEW SECONDS AND THEN THEY DISAPEARED.
GT: Is there more footage that has not yet been released?
DU: NO THAT WAS ALL WE GOT
GT: What is your stance on the theories that this could be pockets of Methane gas being released? or that these are lights from nearby vehicles that reflect off the mist/fog?
DU: NOT FROM ANY GASES, THIS IS A BATTLEFIELD,
WE THOUGHT ABOUT THE LIGHTS FROM OTHER VEHICLES AND WE TESTED THAT THEORY AND IT DID NOT WORK.
THERE WAS NO FOG THAT NITE AND IT WAS CLEAR
GT: Have you gone back to the same place to try to capture more footage?
DU: NO CAUSE WE MOVED TO FLORIDA
GT: What are some of the incorrect facts that we read on the web about your footage that you’d like to address?
DU: THE FOOTAGE WAS TAKEN AT THE TRIANGLER FIELD IN GETTYSBURG BATTLEFIELD, GETTYSBURG, PA OCT 2001
I must say that this video is very interesting. I have never seen anything like it. From a skeptical point of view, it is somewhat similar of videos of lights reflecting off a natural gas. It could very well be that the headlights of passing cars could have illuminated the gas/fog and caused these reflections that seem to be moving in a certain direction. According to Delia Underwood, the road were cars travel on is too far away for it to be reflecting headlights. I would have to agree with her on this. If you examine the video, you can see that these lights move in different directions and elevations. What are your thoughts?
