Haunted battlefields, forts and battleships are on my mind this Veteran’s Day. There are tons of museums and national parks dedicated to preserving the military history associated with them. Many also have reports of paranormal activity, such as:
- USS Salem
- USS North Carolina
- Stones River National Battlefield
- Shiloh National Military Park
- Fort Mifflin
- Fort Pulaski
- The Alamo
- Fort Laramie National Historic Site
- USS Arizona Memorial
The above list certainly isn’t representative of all the places known for both their military history and ghosts. They’re just some of the more popular ones that popped in my head.
I always love visiting forts and Civil War sites when I’m out and about Haunt Jaunting. It’s not because I’m a huge military buff, but I do love learning history. Battlegrounds and forts are usually brimming with that!
Because of the history associated with them, they’re also usually home to the ghosts of those who laid down their lives helping to form this country of ours. (Though not all ghosts belong to souls who died in battle. Disease, among other maladies, have claimed many lives too.)
If you’d like to spend some time this Veteran’s Day locating haunted battlegrounds and reading the ghost stories associated with them, I recommend visiting the sites listed below. They’re all devoted to haunts where fallen soldiers still roam:
- Military Ghosts

To the men and women who have served or who are currently serving our country: thinking of you on Veteran’s Day with much respect and gratitude. Thank you so much for your sacrifice and service!
