MOUNT PLEASANT (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — It’s that time of year again! We’re kicking of this edition of FOX24 News Now’s ‘A Lowcountry Haunt’ series at Patriots Point.

Leyla Gulen takes you aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown for a ghost tour unlike any other, where people can walk in the footsteps of heroes.

Historian, author and tour guide Bruce Orr revealed why this ship’s history is so special.

“The U.S.S. Yorktown, being a historical vessel and the haunts here, what makes it different is that these are American heroes,” Orr says. “These were the good guys.”

The Fighting Lady is hallowed ground, and some of her spirits include canine mascot, Scrappy, and Shadow Ed.

This isn’t just a ghost tour, it’s a way to respect the men and women who gave their lives in the service to our country.

Orr says the ghosts who haunt this location are servicemen who remain steadfast in their defense of freedom and the United States from another realm.

“There’s no greater love for your nation than that.”
