Teddy Roosevelt's War Club

Clip: Season 9 Episode 5 | 16m 2s

More than 30 years ago, a Chicago man discovered an oddly carved piece of wood in the dark recesses of a farmhouse attic. It is about three and a half feet long, two inches around with a faint inscription that suggests it was a gift to the "Great Chief Teddy Roosevelt." Aug. 29, '12. Follow Tukufu Zuberi as he heads to New England to find out who, if anyone, gave this club to Teddy Roosevelt.
