Ft. Detrick Ghosts

Reveal Date

November 1, 2015



Cancer, Poison

Frederick, Maryland has one of the highest cancer rates in the country, thanks to the chemical and biological weapons produced and destroyed in and around Ft. Detrick. Thousands of people who’ve drunk Frederick’s contaminated groundwater have died long, painful deaths.


Now that they’re dead, why should they miss out on Halloween? It’s time to let people know who and what killed them—and to prevent others from dying too.


On Friday, Oct. 30th, concerned citizens of Western Maryland and the D.C. area, members of the Yes Lab, and the Kristen Renee Foundation created a light-hearted yet intensely spooky “ghost march” of the departed victims of the Ft. Detrick cancer cluster. Dressed in their finest white, the group invaded the military base, crashed a historical ghost tour, and haunted downtown Frederick. Check out this action as featured in an episode of ASPIREist.
