The island of Corregidor in the Phillipines is a battle-scarred stretch of land known by some as “The Rock.” Debris reminds the visitor that this once was a part of the war theater during World War II. The island has played host to fishermen, pirates, the Spanish, American military and the Japanese. Today, it is a vacation destination for people around the world who can enjoy a stay at either a hotel or resort on the island. The turmoil that has been experienced on the island has lead to it being rumored as haunted and the legend of the bloodstones was born. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of Corregidor Island! The Moment in Oddity features the Legend of the Piasa and This Day in History is by April Rogers-Krick and features Washington Taking Command of the Continental Army.
