I've been digging for info on Sach's bridge for a couple days...and not getting very far...but I thought it was worth a try to mention Solomon's Bridge. Historically, and through research, my group has been able to find nothing about this bridge. What it is is a little road bridge, entirely unremarkable as one would drive over it. All the information I know about this bridge is "local legend" thought its not very widely spread. The story goes as such : Civil war era (what in Gettysburg didn't happen in the civil war era...) a woman, pregnant out wedlock or somesuch went to the woods (around the bridge, theres a drop off to a creek) and had her baby...this is where the story gets cloudy. I've heard that she killed her baby then herself, and I've heard that her baby was taken from her. All the same, the dumb little thrill seekers like to go to this bridge (and drive over it six times, three each way..though I'm not sure that does anything) and yell something along the lines of "I have your baby" I've never done such, it seems somehow rude to me, however, this spirit is easily provoked. She will push your car, she went so far as to push the car into a ditch (the car was left in neutral to see what she would do with it). She left prints on the car, the car was baby powdered out of curiosity and baby print and adult hand prints were found on the car after return to the church at the end of the road. If anyone has any information about this, I'd love to know it. I can probably elaborate further if needed.
It's always seemed to me - that most of us are quite insane.
