A Ghostly Soldier Wanders Around Fort Stevens In Oregon

Built in 1863, Fort Stevens has a rich history, dating back to the Civil War. It was fired upon by a Japanese submarine in June, 1942 – the first military installation in the contiguous U.S. to come under fire from the enemy in World War II. In 1947, the fort and its battery were shuttered, and today the vacant buildings are part of a 4,300 state park, welcoming visitors from all over the world.

Visitors aren’t the only ones who walk these grounds…tales abound of a lonely soldier who’s long dead, but is often seen in the area.
