Fort Delaware started as a defense for the Delaware River on Pea Patch Island in Delaware. During the Civil War, it would serve as a prison camp for Confederate soldiers that was considered a death camp. The Fort would also be used during the Spanish American War and the World Wars. Today, it is a state park featuring re-enactments, tours and other events. Many groups have investigated there including Britain’s Most Haunted, Ghost Hunters Academy and Ghost Hunters used it for one of their Halloween episodes. Join us as we explore the history and haunts of Fort Delaware! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Scott Booker and features Nixon’s half-eaten sandwich and This Month in History features Nixon’s Last Press Conference. Our location was suggested by Anthony Ramirez.
Delaware is one of America’s original thirteen colonies and the state’s roots in American history are deep. The city of Wilmington is not only its largest city today, but Wilmington is also the first city established in the state in an area that was once the settlement for the Lenape tribe. Wilmington is home to a mansion that is situated off Marsh Road that is formally called Rockwood Mansion. The mansion is old and beautiful, but it is also something else: haunted. This home is considered the most haunted house museum in the state of Delaware. Denise and Diane take you through the history of this home and then into the hauntings. Moment in Oddity is the Legend of Gray Man and This Day in History features New Amsterdam becoming a city.
