We Dare You To Visit The Ruins Of This Civil War Haunting Ground In Oklahoma

Fort Washita was established in 1842 as a military post near Durant, Oklahoma. The fort was built to safeguard the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations from the rival Plains Indians but was later abandoned at the beginning of the Civil War. It was then overtaken by Confederate soldiers and was used as a hospital and supply headquarters. At the end of the war, Fort Washita was burned to the ground and was considered obsolete…except for a few haunted spirits left behind. The hauntings of these spirits have drawn in visitors and ghost hunters from around the country to investigate this eerie place.
