Episode description: Wes Cowan travels to Frankfort, Kentucky to research the identity of an Owensboro, Kentucky man whose name is engraved on a rare set of Civil War-era pistols. He visits local landmarks including Rick's City Cafe and discovers his family history intersects with that of original owner of these guns. Also, the story behind an old 78rpm distributed by K.K.K and Eduardo Pagan tries to prove that Motown bass player James Jamerson owned a battered Ampeg B-15 amp.
