Episode Info

Questions for the detectives involve a Lake Superior barge that might have seen duty on D-Day and an abolitionist banner belonging to two Michigan brothers. Then there's a series of 19th-century photos of young women. Were they advertisements for mail-order brides? The photos list the name of an "agency" in Chicago, where sociologist Tukufu Zuberi finds evidence that they could be. He also finds evidence that things might not have been on the up and up.
