Brad Meltzer’s Lost Historygeektv

The famous flag that the firefighters raised on 9/11 is missing. The Wright Brothers’ original patent for the first airplane was stolen. And so was Adolf Hitler’s personal photo album. While researching his novels at the National Archives, Brad realized so much of our American history is vanishing one artifact at a time. Some of our most important historical and cultural treasures have been lost or stolen. Every year, dozens of treasures, from George Washington’s teeth to the Apollo 11 moon landing tapes, vanish from the shelves of famous museums, government archives and private collections.
