    History Detectives [#206Z] Preston Brook's Riding Crop/Home of Lincoln Assassination Plot/Revolutionary War Cannon * Preston Brook's Riding Crop - A Long Island man owns a beautiful old riding crop he claims was given to an ancestor by the president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis. But this is no ordinary present. Its owner believes it was given to Preston Brooks to congratulate him for beating anti-slavery campaigner Charles Sumner senseless in the Senate - a public attack many regard as a significant moment in America's move toward division and Civil War. To find out if the story behind the crop is true, HD taps into New York City, Columbus, Georgia, and Sea Cliff, New York, where they unravel a startling story of politics, filibustering and mistaken identity.
    * Home of Lincoln Assassination Plot - A resident of Greenwich Village, New York, has a question about the home she's been living in for the last few years. She's heard a rumor that John Wilkes Booth, the infamous assassin of Abraham Lincoln, spent some time in her house. Not only that, she's heard that her home is where the plot for the assassination was hatched. Is this really where Lincoln's murder was planned?
    * Revolutionary War Cannon - A Boston woman is fascinated by an old cannon kept in a local national park storage facility. She has heard that in 1774, members of the Boston Militia stole the cannon from the Boston Armory and hid it on her ancestor's land. Could the attempt by British forces to retrieve this and other cannons have precipitated the first battle of the Revolutionary War? HD travels to Massachusetts to investigate exciting evidence, shedding light on events leading up to the War of Independence and the founding of the United States.

    American Road to Victory [#103] The Americans in the Bulge Battlefield tour guide Ellwood Von Siebold takes us on a tour the frozen Ardennes Forests to Malmedy, Saint Vith, and Bastogne. Learn how the gallant actions of the US forces surprised the Nazi plan to encircle and destroy the Allied armies. Witness vignettes of individual gallantry, illustrated though blended archival footage, re-enactment and special effects. Visit the actual frozen foxholes and fog shrouded hills where we hear soldiers describe the unimaginable conditions of winter war. duration 1:26:51   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 8:30 am
    Bonaparte's Retreat This program recounts Joseph Bonaparte's relationship with his famous older brother, his escape to the United States after his brother's downfall at Waterloo, and his impact on America's fascination with French history and personalities. In 1815, the Frenchman settled in New Jersey, where he lived on a lavish estate, designed elaborate gardens, entertained leading figures of the day and surrounded himself with the largest and most important collection of European fine and decorative art in the US. The documentary is based, in part, on Patricia Stroud's biography The Man Who Had Been King: The American Exile of Napoleon's Brother Joseph, and the fascinating story unfolds through interviews with leading scholars and historians. duration 28:50   STEREO TVG
