A South Carolina historian and paranormal investigator explores ghost sighting aboard the historic aircraft carrier—includes photographs. Commissioned by the United States Navy in 1943, the fourth USS Yorktown was active in the Pacific theater of World War II and later saw action in Vietnam. The legendary aircraft carrier was decommissioned in 1970 and now serves as the home of the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in South Carolina. But, according to many, the echoes of battle are still heard and felt on her decks. Staff members and visitors claim to have experienced disembodied voices, uniformed apparitions, shadowy masses and other unexplainable occurrences since the "Fighting Lady" first docked at Patriots Point. Join local historian and paranormal investigator Bruce Orr as he examines the history, hauntings, and heritage of this National Historic Landmark.
