Along the banks of the Platte River in Wyoming, a legend has been passed on since the mid 1800s. A legend of an spectral nature. Several witnesses have claimed to see a phantom ship on the Platte River. They say that an eerie mist will begin to form on the river and slowly the mist will form a bank of fog that only covers a small area. Out of the fog will then emerge a sailing ship from days gone by, appearing grey and unnatural, manned by phantom sailors. This vessel has become known as, “The Ship of Death”.
