After their mother's death, Lisa Tracy and her sister, Jeanne, are left to contend with several households' worth of furniture and memorabilia. What starts as an exercise in information gathering designed to boost the estate's resale value at auction evolves into the discovery that the roots of our passion for acquisition often lie not in shallow materialism but in our desire to possess the most treasured commodity of all- a connection to the past. These travels open her eyes to a rich family history characterized by duty, hardship, honor, and devotion...qualities embodied in the very items she intends to sell. Offers an offbeat and intriguing mix of cultural anthropology, Antiques Roadshow Americana, and military history and lore.
