Episode description: A painting passed down through a Maryland family may be an authentic portrait of George Washington by famed artist Gilbert Stuart, whose résumé includes the portrait of Washington that appears on today's dollar bill. In Salem, OR, a poem found hidden in an antique trunk appears to have been written by an American named Dan Goodhue who was a POW in England in 1780. And an old cannon now kept in a Boston-area national park storage facility may have played a role in precipitating the first battle of the Revolutionary War. [cc]
