History Detectives - Season 2, Episode 8 - Rotten Tomatoes

Bonnie & Clyde; Revolutionary War Poem; Portrait of George Washington


Episode Info

Were five spent bullets owned by a Wisconsin woman taken from the bodies of Bonnie and Clyde? Was a poem owned by an Oregon man written by a Revolutionary War POW? And did Gilbert Stuart draw a Maryland family's portrait of George Washington? The bullet owner's question stems from the fact that her grandfather-in-law, a Dallas "ballistician," investigated Bonnie and Clyde in 1934, the year they died. The poem was signed by a Daniel Goodhue. Can he be traced? As for the Washington portrait, the fact that Stuart seldom made drawings is only one problem with it.
