Doc Holliday's Watch/Civil War Female Soldiers/Japanese Internment Camp Artwork (Episode #307)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 9, 2013 -- 5:00 PM

* Doc Holliday's Watch - Four years ago, a pawn store clerk in Tulsa, Oklahoma, met a customer with a pawned antique watch, engraved with a potentially historic inscription. Could this watch have been a gift from the fearless frontier lawman Wyatt Earp to the dentist, gambler and gunman "Doc" Holliday, perhaps in gratitude for his help fighting the Clanton outlaw gang at the OK Corral? HD uncovers the surprising facts behind this legendary gunfight and the real relationship between Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
* Civil War Female Soldiers - A Louisiana resident owns a Civil War photograph featuring a fine-boned, slight-figured soldier. The soldier is simply identified as a member of the 2nd Louisiana Infantry... but could it be a woman in disguise? HD learns more about the remarkable contributions of women during the Civil War and determines if this could indeed be the only known photo of a Confederate woman soldier.
* Japanese Internment Camp Artwork - In a San Francisco historical archive, an intern recently discovered a set of 10 postcard-size watercolors of what appears to be a prison camp. Piecing them together, the intern was surprised to find they were painted on the back of a Japanese-American internment notice from 1942. What is the story behind these paintings? Who was the artist? And what was his or her fate? HD travels to the West Coast to solve the puzzle, uncovering the dramatic story of one of the 120,000 Americans citizens who spent years behind barbed wire, guilty only of being of Japanese descent.
