History Detectives

Monopoly/Japanese Internment Camp Artwork/The Lewis and Clark Cane

55:45 | #202 | TV-G

A Delaware man shows an old board game similar to Monopoly—but made 20 years before the Parker brothers patented their creation. The detectives also explore a set of 10 postcard-size watercolors painted on the back of a Japanese-American internment notice from 1942 and a wooden cane reportedly given to a viewer's ancestor by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark as thanks for his help during their famous Corps of Discovery expedition.
