Here’s some creepy, scary stuff to start the Halloween Season….Sensitive Readers should brace themselves. There is no cheesy Zombie screaming shit.
David Paulides has been researching people disappearing in our National Parks. He stumbled on his first case when he was researching something else in a National park. He contacted the National Park Service to get their list of missing persons and they said they didn’t keep one. What?
After many letters, phone calls and emails the NPS said they could get him a list of missing persons in Yellowstone National Park and a national list. However, the Yellowstone list would cost him about $35,000. The national list would cost him millions. The NPS said this was the cost of manhours to manually search NPS for missing persons stories.
The following is Part One. Keep watch the parts on youTube and comment on the part you were listening to when you decided to stop and hide under your bed,
During the filming of the Ted Turner film “Gettysburg” , Civil War reenactors came from all over the country to participate in the first authorized reenactment on the actual battle field. During a break, a group of men noticed a fellow reenactor emerge from the woods. “He smelled real bad”, remembered one man. The man said to them, “Rough one today, ay boys?” The men agreed with him as they complemented him on his authentic garb. He had a quizzical look on his face and asked them how they were situated for ammunition. When they replied that they had no ammunition, the man reached into his pouch and produced a handful of musket rounds. He apologized for not having more to share. As they were inspecting their gifts the man turned and disappeared back into the woods.
Noticing that they didn’t look like the rounds issued to them, they went to the head of props for the film, who told them they weren’t issued by him. Later they made their way into Gettysburg proper to have them checked out, and were chilled to learn that they were genuine musket rounds, dating from the time of the battle.
