History Detectives: 8/31
Can Gwen trace this tiny tattered swatch of red fabric to the flag at the center of an early Civil War skirmish? What can we learn from the evocative symbol of a bird dropping a bomb on this World War II patch? Did these spoils of war belong to Peace Chief Black Kettle? What is a "Lincoln Oath" and did Abraham Lincoln actually sign it? Find out in this week's History Detectives.
Airs Tuesday, July 31, at 7pm on Channel 5.
