I want to digress a moment to note that reports of strange aerial phenomena are not peculiar to the post WWII period.
Free French flag, during WWII, the Free French forces fighting against the Vichy regime and Germany, inserted a red cross of Lorraine (a symbol of Joan of Arc's fight against foreign invaders) on the white stripe of the tricolour.
After that owner's death in 1922, the home remained empty throughout the Depression and WWII, with the grounds becoming the 1940s equivalent of a lover's lane for Little Rock's courting youth.
During your time in Charleston you can tour of an antebellum mansion, climb aboard a WWII aircraft carrier or experience what life was like centuries ago at one of the city's many museums.
These kinds of parodies remained popular through the first part of the 20th century and in fact formed the foundation for many songs popular with troops during WWI and WWII.
