Special Containment Procedures: In order to monitor SCP-XXXX, Automated Observation Post 14 has been erected within Chancellorsville National Military Park, with the exterior design of a park service storage building. AO-14 continuously records electromagnetic and thaumometric data to determine when a manifestation event is occurring, and in such a scenario will immediately alert offsite containment personnel and initiate Mitigation Protocol McGuire. This protocol consists of the following stages:

  1. AO-14 issues an alert to park staff that the Mountain Road trail is closing early, and all civilians should be redirected from the area. This alert contains a low-yield Prayther-Berryman memetic trigger to encourage compliance.
  2. A standby detachment of Mobile Task Force Mu-13 ("Ghostbusters") deploys from Site-26, to arrive within twenty to thirty minutes.
  3. While the task force is en route, AO-14 uses audiovisual cues to attract SCP-XXXX-1, -2, and -3 towards a specific area, in order to minimize civilian exposure.
  4. Upon arrival, MTF µ-13, presenting as a park service security team, establishes a perimeter around the manifestation point. Personnel trained in amnestic administration will detain any civilians flagged by AO-14 under standard coverup procedures (removal of anomalous experiences and implantation of false memories).
  5. In the interim, assigned task force personnel will assemble the portable Incorporeal Entity Vacuum Chamber1 held within AO-14 and attempt to contain SCP-XXXX-1, -2, and -3 inside the chamber. One of two potential scenarios will occur:
    • Elea Scenario: In the event that the entities demanifest before containment can be secured, MTF µ-13 will remain onsite until AO-14 gives the "all clear" signal (meaning a return to baseline aspect radiation has been confirmed).
    • York Scenario: In the event that IEVC containment is successful, the entities are to be transported directly to Site-26, whereupon the Director of Containment will enact revised procedures.

The Theurgics Division of the Thaumatology Department has commissioned Provisional Research Task Force XXXX-Yodh to investigate SCP-XXXX and attempt to develop an eviction ritual, tentatively classified as Neutralization Procedure Y-33.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to the unintentional evocation ritual performed by a group of American Civil War re-enactors on 30 April 2019. Through currently uncertain means, the re-enactment of the Battle of Chancellorsville acted as a catalyst for the manifestation of SCP-XXXX-1, -2, and -3.


From left to right, SCP-XXXX-2, -1, and -3.

SCP-XXXX-1, -2, and -3 are Class-Y incorporeal humanoid apparitions. These entities identify as members of the 18th North Carolina Infantry Regiment of the Confederate Army: specifically, First Lieutenant William A. Kirk (SCP-XXXX-1), Second Lieutenant Wesley L. Bumgarner (SCP-XXXX-2), and Sergeant Major Preston Layman John (SCP-XXXX-3).2

These apparitions display very limited responses to external stimuli; the only effective method of communication with them is to present as their superior officer. This apparent lack of purpose or response outside of military customs suggests that their existence is the result of a YH-class "Revenant" or YR-class "Unfinished Business" scenario.

Instances have never been observed to deviate more than 300 meters from their manifestation point; it has not been determined whether this is intentional or if they are 'bound' to this location.
