Driving on US 15 from Maryland to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
US 15 enters Pennsylvania south of Gettysburg, Adams County, from Frederick County, Maryland, on a freeway alignment. The route heads to the north and bypasses Gettysburg, where the route interchanges with US 30. The freeway alignment ends temporarily at York Springs, carrying US 15 on a four-lane, divided alignment until the route upgrades to a freeway again in Dillsburg. The route continues north toward Harrisburg, where the freeway terminates again as US 15 joins with US 11. The two routes begin to follow the west shore of the Susquehanna River with limited-access sections until they split across the river from Sunbury. US 15 continues north into Williamsport, joining I-180 and US 220. At I-180's western terminus, US 220, signed south, heads due west toward Jersey Shore and Lock Haven, while US 15 turns due north through Mansfield and crosses into New York near Lawrenceville, Tioga County.
The majority of US 15 is four lanes, alternating between limited and unlimited access. The one leg that is only two lanes is between White Deer and South Williamsport. The segment between Williamsport and the New York state line will eventually be designated Interstate 99.

155th Gettysburg Pickett's Charge Artillery Barrage
Union and Confederate forces re-enacting Pickets charge the 155th Gettysburg National Civil War Battle Reenactment in Gettysburg Pennsylvania.
Between July 1 and 3 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg, one of the largest battles during the American Civil War, was fought across the fields and heights in the vicinity of the town.
The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, under the command of Robert E. Lee, experienced success in the early stages of the battle but was ultimately defeated by the Army of the Potomac, commanded by George G. Meade. Lee executed an orderly withdrawal and managed to escape across the Potomac River without being drawn into another battle. Meade was heavily criticized by President Abraham Lincoln for his cautious pursuit and failure to destroy Lee's retreating army.
Casualties were high with total losses on both sides over 27,000 Confederate and 23,000 Union. The residents of Gettysburg were left to care for the wounded and bury the dead following the Confederate retreat. Approximately 8,000 men and 3,000 horses lay under the summer sun. The soldiers' bodies were gradually reinterred in what is today known as Gettysburg National Cemetery, where, on November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln attended a ceremony to officially consecrate the grounds and delivered his Gettysburg Address.

Abner Doubleday began the Civil War as a Union officer and aimed the first cannon shot in response to the bombardment opened on Ft. Sumter in 1861. Two years later, after a series of battles (including Antietam, where he was wounded), Doubleday took over a division in the Army of the Potomac's 1st Corps.
These are his memoirs of service in two of the War's great campaigns. At Chancellorsville, a very promising start made by General Hooker against Lee's Confederate forces fell to a defeat when, in Doubleday's estimation, normal and prudent precautions against surprise in the heavily-wooded battlefield were not carried out; he also seemingly apologizes for Hooker's lack of leadership during the battle as a result of his having been stunned by a cannon ball hitting the post against which he was leaning.
After Chancellorsville, Hooker was replaced as Army Commander by General George Meade. Doubleday describes the curious circumstances that led the two opposing armies to meet at Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. When Doubleday's superior, General John Reynolds, was killed by a sharpshooter on the first day's battle, he took over the 1st Corps and fought it well against converging Confederate divisions that badly outnumbered him. The Corps was forced by battle losses to retire, but its desperate fight bought the time needed for Union reinforcements to pour into Gettysburg and thus prevent a defeat in detail.
General Howard of the XIth Corps replaced Doubleday as the senior commander on the field, and mistakenly wrote to Meade that 1st Corps had routed after practically no fighting. Thus, when Meade arrived, he removed Doubleday from command of 1st Corps, replacing him with a more junior general from another Corps. The snub would embitter Doubleday against Meade. This book is in part Doubleday's revenge, as he picks apart Meade's indecision after the battle was essentially won, with the repulse of the famous Pickett's Charge. In his view, Meade could have won the war at that moment. (Summary by Mark Smith)

7. Willowbrook State Insane Asylum

Anyone in New York at that time with a mental or physical mutation were locked up here. When a surprise documentary was displayed on national television, many people were appalled by the conditions. Many children were smeared with their own feces, no lights were on and everyone were using flashlights. This caused the facility to close its doors. But where did everyone go? Many say that once this happened, children in Staten Island were kidnapped by the insane who once lived here then taken back to the abandoned Willowbrook. Rumors of ghosts or boogey men are still reported at this location.

5. Houska Castle, Czech Republic
A castle in Czech Republic allegedly covers a pit that leads to directly to the gates of hell. King Ottokar from the 1200’s offered to excuse anyone from their crimes if they agreed to be lowered into the pit. The first one to offer, let out a panick stricken scream, begging for mercy.

Once the home of the royal rulers of Hawaii, this palace is now haunted. The palace is home the tombs of several chiefs of the islands. A former queen of the palace is said to haunt this location. She was a fan of smoking cigars and workers there would notice how it mysteriously gets smokey. Sounds of footsteps creep out tourists. Who would want to leave this paradise? Not the spirits, at least.
3. Zoroastrian Tower of Silence
You won’t hear any noise here at the tower of silence, unless of course, it’s a ghost! It’s a Zoroastrian tradition, in India, to leave dead bodies on top of a tower to allow birds and even dogs to eat their dead bodies. This civilization believed that corpses were filled with evil spirits once they died. Only exposure to birds and sunlight will purify them. Once this happened the bodies were embalmed then thrown into the circle of the pit. This practice, for the most part, isn’t still practiced but some places in India still do. That still doesn’t mean the spirits of the dead aren’t roaming around.
2. Lizzie Borden House, Massachusetts
One of the most gruesome crime scenes in the United States is now home to a haunted place you want to avoid. August 4, 1892 Andrew and Abby Borden were found viciously murdered with an ax. Lizzie was eventually acquitted for the crimes and continued to live in the same town. Various owners of the house have claimed serious paranormal activity. Some claim to hear screams coming from upstairs where Abby Borden was killed. For the right price, you can spend the night here, but it doesn’t mean you should.
1.The Winchester Mansion, San Jose
Sarah Winchester had a lot of money after her husband, the creator of the Winchester repeating rifle, passed away. Sarah had visited a psychic who claimed that she would be haunted by all the lives who were killed by her husband’s death device. Sarah believed the only way to escape all the spirits was to move west to California. Her 20 million dollar inheritance (a lot at that time in 1884) was enough to built her one of the most outlandish mansions to this day. The spirits consulted her on how to build the house. Her favorite number was 13 and you’ll notice this throughout the design. Stairs that lead to ceilings, bathrooms inside of bathrooms and were made to confuse her demon attackers. Many believe this house is still haunted by Sarah and the victims from the Winchester rifle.
