This ship, built in 1797, boasts several ghosts, including: Neil Harvey, who was executed when he left his assigned station at his gun in fear during a 1799 battle with the French; Captain Thomas Truxtun, seen in an old-fashioned Navy uniform; Carl Hansen, ship’s watchman until 1965, whose ghost likes to play cards and give tours; an 11-year-old surgeon’s assistant who was stabbed to death by two sailors; and a sailor who hanged himself on board, who hovers around the gun and forecastle decks.
