Ventriloquist Dummy; Home of Lincoln Assassination Plot; 34 Star Flag
Questions for the detectives: How did a black ventriloquist affect early-20th-century race relations? Was the Lincoln assassination hatched in a Greenwich Village woman's house? And what's the story behind the Staten Island Historical Society's Civil War-era 34-star flag? Detectives include appraisers Wesley Cowan and Elyse Luray, Columbia University architectural-history professor Gwendolyn Wright and University of Pennsylvania sociologist Tukufu Zuberi.
