  • Rating: TV-PG
In the shadow of Philadelphia International Airport stands this fort that served the U.S. military from Revolutionary times to the 1950's. The staff recently unearthed underground rooms in which a condemned man etched his name and a final message on the walls. Is he the ghostly presence visitors are said to feel?
