History Detectives

1775 Almanac, Exercise Records, Moon Museum

Season 9 Episode 9 | 55m 10s

In this episode, the notes scrawled in the margins of this 1775 Almanac give us intimate insights into how loyalties strained families during the Revolution. Then a garage sale find ties a woman to the grandfather she never met. Was he the phonograph exercise guru of the 1920s? And did NASA unwittingly smuggle Andy Warhol art to the moon?
