History buff Geoff Edgers visits museums and private collections to discover untold stories about defining moments in American history. At the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Edgers views artifacts from the B-29 bomber that dropped the atomic bomb over Nagasaki during World War II. He then examines the official testimony of Boston Corbett, the man who killed John Wilkes Booth. Next, Edgers hears the story behind a silver pistol awarded to the leader of a covert unit during the Vietnam War. Finally, he learns about Moe Berg, a mediocre baseball player who in 1934 accompanied the American all-star team on a tour of Japan to covertly gather intelligence.
