The evening will begin at Hanover Countyโ€™s Cold Harbor Battlefield. From May 31 to June 12, 1864, the Battle of Cold Harbor raged on. One of the final battles of Union Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grantโ€™s Overland Campaign, this battle is remembered as one of the bloodiest and most lopsided battles of American history. With over 18,000 casualties and losses, the land this battle occurred on is stained in energy, emotion, and history.

This will be only the second time a public investigation has ever been held at the Cold Harbor Battlefield – the first being over 4 years ago. It’s time we go back – and we want YOU to join us.

After we complete our investigation at Cold Harbor Battlefield, we’ll get into our cars and travel to the Hanover Tavern. The earliest portion of the Tavern being built in 1791, there was a Tavern on the property spanning back to 1733. One of only a few surviving colonial-era Taverns in the United States, the Hanover Tavern hosted such historic figures as George Washington, Lord Cornwallis, Patrick Henry, P.T. Barnum, Marquis de Lafayette, and more. Both Union and Confederate troops utilized the Tavern on their way to and from the battlefields.

Not only will you have the opportunity to investigate Hanover Tavern, but also the Historic Courthouse and Old Stone Jail as well – both hotbeds for paranormal activity.

For years, guests of each of these locations report eerie experiences of ghost apparitions, smells, and unexplainable noises. For the first time ever, we have access to investigate those claims. Are Union and Confederate soldiers still waging war at Hanover Countyโ€™s Cold Harbor Battlefield? Are previous Hanover Tavern keepers still roaming the halls? Itโ€™s time to find out for yourself.

– We will be breaking into small groups to investigate each location. Each group will be led by an investigator with equipment that may help you on your investigation!

– We will be investigating outdoors for the first portion of the investigation (Cold Harbor Battlefield). Please dress accordingly.

– We will be traveling outdoors to different buildings during the investigation at Hanover Tavern. The buildings do have HVAC and will be heated, but please dress accordingly.

– We will be utilizing our own personal vehicles for traveling from Cold Harbor Battlefield to Hanover Tavern. Please plan accordingly. If you plan to attend with a friend, consider carpooling and leaving your car ahead of time at Hanover Tavern. Parking is limited at Hanover Tavern, but additional parking is available across the street directly behind the Historic Hanover Courthouse and Old Stone Jail.

– Please do not put on fragrances prior to the investigation. Smells and scents are often reported at haunted locations as a sign of spirit activity, and it will be difficult to identify if we are wearing fragrances.

– Please do not wear loose jewelry, baggy clothing, etc. These often make extra sounds and noises that will make listening to and identifying E.V.P.s difficult!

– There will be identified location(s) outside for you to smoke. All forms of cigarettes, vapes, e-cigs, etc. are not to be utilized while within any buildings. There will be an identified receptacle for cigarette butt disposal.

– Please do not plan to investigate under the influence of drugs or alcohol. You will be asked to leave if so.

– Weapons of any and all kinds are strictly forbidden.

– Ouija Boards are strictly forbidden.

– “Crossing over”, “Smudging”, and “Provoking” are strictly prohibited.

– Bring your equipment! We’ll have some that you can use within your groups, but you are welcome to bring any equipment you have for investigating that you can carry with you. A flashlight is highly encouraged. Additionally, if you do not have an audio recorder, bring your phone! We’ll ask you to put it in airplane mode, but you can still record audio onto your cellphone – a large number of people on our investigations have recorded EVPs on their phones!

This investigation is for you, so bring your ideas and thoughts for investigating! You never know what, or who, you will run into, and we value your unique ideas and suggestions for investigating these locations! We urge you to be ready to be involved in the investigation! Think of some questions you’d like to ask in advance, if you have any theories that we can test out, and more!
