The USS Battleship Texas launched in May 1912 and served through both World Wars before being declared a museum ship in 1948. There were surprisingly few wartime deaths reported onboard the ship, but paranormal incidents are another story.
Visitors report wisps of vapor and voices in parts of the ship, but both can be easily blamed on one’s imagination. Less explicable, however, is the “red-haired sailor” seen wandering the halls and standing near the ladders. He’s never made trouble, and his identity remains unknown, so these days he’s assumed to be the non-confrontational specter of someone still committed to his post.
