No Heads, No Hands

No Heads, No Hands

As the British began to invade the Fort and opened fire with their artillery, an American soldier witnessed a blood-curdling sight amongst the chaos of the invasion.

In the century since, visitors to the fort have claimed to witness two soldiers walking the grounds at night, one with no head and one with no hands.

Captain Kingsley’s Bed

Bedridden and suffering from a myriad of intense health problems, Captain Kingsley spent his final months suffering from vicious fevers, hallucinations and eventually mercury poisoning which had devastating effects on both his physical and mental health.

Due to his long and horrible death, many people believe that the Captain still haunts this room and the bed specifically. Staff and visitors have entered the room to find the sheets strewn about the bed, while some have reported hearing footsteps and seeing windows and doors move without being touched.
