Details

Episode description: Pistols now owned by a San Francisco bank may have been used in the last great duel on U.S. soil, an 1856 confrontation between an abolitionist senator and a California Supreme Court justice. A New Jersey woman believes that a portrait she owns (possibly of Evelyn Nesbit) is a lost masterpiece by one of America's greatest illustrators and artists, Howard Chandler Christy. And in Cookstown, NJ, renovations of the family home of a military hero who served with Gen. Custer reveal an old bayonet hidden in the attic rafters. Could the bayonet have been used in the Battle of Little Bighorn? [cc]
