Prolog: In late March 2010 Long Island Paranormal Investigators was invited to investigate a private house in Gettysburg, PA. LIPI chose to perform the investigation over the course of two nights thus allowing for smaller groups of LIPI investigators to work at the house each night and to visit the historic Gettysburg Civil War battle field over the course of a weekend.
