The Hermit of Wolf Hill

Spread the love

Timothy and Alison present the story of GFGE Thomas, a hermit who lived on a remote section of the battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Was he a practicing folk magician? Who or what tormented him in his lonely abode? Two years after the hermit’s death, his cabin burnt down under mysterious circumstances – and his ghost was said to haunt Wolf Hill. Jon and Timothy head to Wolf Hill and find the foundation of Thomas’s cabin, along with his well. Chad and Timothy return and locate a cave in which the hermit stayed before he built his cabin.
