AMERICA'S HAUNTED MILITARY TALES
 
FORT BELLEFONTAINE
This original military post was founded in St. Louis in 1805 and served as a garrison and an trading post with the Indians. Later abandoned after Jefferson Barracks was established, the grand staircase that was built by the WPA at the former post began to be regarded as haunted.

JEFFERSON BARRACKS
As the oldest continuously operating military post west of the Mississippi River, Jefferson Barracks has seen more than its share of history over the years. Not surprisingly, the decades of events have left an impression behind and the post is known as one of the most haunted military sites in America!

THE ST. LOUIS ARSENAL
The historic St. Louis Arsenal took center stage as violence in the city escalated during the Civil War. Although the building no longer serves as it once did, stories have been told over the years of the mysterious "Blue Man", a shadowy ghost that now haunts the Arsenal.


FORT LEONARD WOOD
The strange tales of this Missouri military post revolve around a small town called "Bloodland"   that was swallowed up by the base many years ago. Through the years, the ghosts of former occupants of the town have been involved in all manner of questionable behavior.

FORT MCALLISTER
This legendary fort fell to Federal forces at Savannah during the Civil War and the history of the place tell of a phantom cat who was a mascot of sorts for the Confederates who manned the guns here. This phantom feline may have even more than nine lives!
FORT PULASKI
Made famous in the film Glory, Fort Pulaski saw fierce fighting and amazing bravery during the Civil War. Over the years, it has become known for the variety of hauntings that occur here, including the very interactive presence of a "commanding" ghost.

JOHN BELL HOOD & THE CURSE OF ANNE MITCHELL
According to Kentucky legend, General John Bell Hood was cursed with ill luck and defeat because of a terrible event involving his former love and a vengeful curse that she placed on all those who wronged her. Was it mere coincidence -- or was the curse of Anne Mitchell real? (Guest Author - Troy Taylor)

GHOSTS OF ANTIETAM
Antietam, located near Sharpsburg, Maryland is one of the best preserved of the Civil War battlefields and perhaps for this reason, one of the most eerie. There have been many tales of ghosts and hauntings here, including some of the most famous of the war. (Guest Author- Troy Taylor)

FORT CONCHO
This Texas post was established back in 1867 to protect the frontier settlements & to patrol the vast reaches of the Texas wilderness. Although closed down after only 22 years, many of the officers and soldiers here continue to do their duty from beyond the grave!

FORT LEATON
This Texas fort, near Presidio,  was originally founded back in 1848 by Ben Leaton, a scalp hunter for the Mexican government -- it is a place of legend, deaths, dark secrets, lost treasure and not surprisingly, a few ghosts. Discover the mysterious legacy of this historic site.

FORT WASHITA
Located in the south-central part of Oklahoma are the ruins of Fort Washita. The fort was established in 1841 and was abandoned to Confederate forces in 1861. Sometime between those years, a murder took place which may have given the fort its resident ghost -- or at least one of them. The ruins and rebuilt barracks are still said to be haunted today by this restless spirit, the ghost of a headless woman who has been dubbed "Aunt Jane".
FORT DE CHARTRES
Do the Dead Still Walk in Illinois? One of the greatest ghostly legends of southern Illinois is that of the Phantom Funeral Procession of Fort de Chartres, the ruined French & British outpost. One certain dates a select group of people are believed to see the funeral walk once more. Find out who & when!
