Monopoly; Japanese Internment Camp Artwork; The Lewis and Clark Cane

EPISODE:

Episode Info

Investigations include similarities between a Delaware man's 100-year-old board game and Monopoly; 10 postcard-sized watercolors of a World War II-era internment camp for Japanese-Americans; and ties between a Minnesota man's cane and Lewis and Clark. The board game predates Monopoly by some 30 years (and was devised, its owner says, by the anticapitalist economist Henry George). The watercolors were painted on the back of an internment evacuation notice. And an expert says that the cane is too elegant to have been taken on the Lewis and Clark expedition, but maybe the detectives can find other ties between Lewis and Clark and the Minnesota man's family.
