In Part 1 of this virtual program tonight, Wallace will briefly talk about her personal experiences aboard the USS North Carolina, as well as her interactions with many of the paranormal teams and television shows that have been aboard. Representatives from The Ghost Guild will then introduce their organization, tell what they do, explain protocols used during investigations, and share some video and audio data, along with personal experiences. Part 2, next week, will resume with more experiences from staff and volunteers about their otherworldly experiences aboard this historic ship.

History and Highballs is an early-evening adults-only virtual program designed to investigate some of North Carolina’s more fascinating stories, places, and characters. So grab a favorite evening libation and tune in to these events. Not sure how to make a mixed drink or what drink to mix?
