Back in 2006 a Tennessee woman showed David Crockett’s not executed marriage license on Antiques Roadshow. Two courts have ruled she has to give it back to Jefferson County. “As for her argument that the county trashed the document, the trial court stated: ‘That dog just won't hunt ... it just don't make sense that you can have all of the other documents immediately preceding that and subsequent to that, they're all still official county records, they're still in the clerk's office of Jefferson County.’"

Some interesting comments at the pbs site. “Your appraiser said ‘Eskimo!’” “That submarine flag is racist!”
