  • Aired: 10/02/2012
  • 53:16
  • Rating: TV-G
In this episode, can History Detectives return the diary of a fallen North Vietnamese soldier to that veteran’s family? Then, a notebook full of recipes for large volumes of liquor makes an Indiana man wonder if his rich uncle was a Prohibition-era bootlegger. And what can an old ledger tell us about how Hollywood treated Native American actors?
