The Ghoul of Gettysburg

Spread the love

In the first of a series of shows related to Gettysburg, PA leading up to episode 300, Alison and Timothy talk about a man called Godfor, the so-called “Ghoul of Gettysburg.” Was he a battlefield fiend, or just a guy who looked different? Then we talk about another human ghoul, a man named Bertrand who committed horrible deeds in 1800s France.
