History Detectives | Black Tom Shell

A woman in Whitehouse Station, NJ has an explosive artifact in her possession: an intact artillery shell. In 1916 a German spy ring set off explosions on Black Tom Island in New York's harbor, using the United States' own munitions. Host Gwendolyn Wright heads to Maryland and New Jersey to determine whether this shell was involved in one of the earliest foreign terrorist attacks on American soil.
