OPERATION TIME: Unknown to present
Fort De Chartes was built in 1756 for King Louis XV, though he never actually got a chance to use it. The fort’s first paranormal encounter was in 1889, and the last one to be reported was in 1989. On every July 4th that falls on a Friday, a ghostly funeral procession begins between 11:00 PM and midnight. The procession includes around forty wagons, twenty-six soldiers on horseback, and a casket laying flat on a wagon. It is believed that the body is of a prominent person who was murdered. The next July 4th that is a Friday is in 2014.
