HISTORY DETECTIVES fans blew us away with what they found this year! A New Jersey woman thinks she may have Bob Dylan’s electric guitar, THE guitar that revolutionized Rock ‘n Roll! Is this chunk of molten metal a piece of the B-25 that crashed into the Empire State Building in 1945? Elyse Luray rendered Country Music singer Clint Black speechless with the information she revealed about his 1909 book of wanted posters. And in 1966 a U.S. marine recovered a diary from the body of a North Vietnamese soldier. The U.S. Department of the Defense gets involved in the case as we try to return the diary to the soldier’s family in Vietnam.

We have cried and sighed, laughed and rejoiced as we pulled these stories together for you this year. We only hope you love Season 10 as much as we do! Premiering July 17th 9/8c.

National events make the HISTORY DETECTIVES schedule tricky to follow this year. Don’t miss any of our mind-boggling mysteries. Check here for the latest update. And always check your local listings.
