A farmhouse door in Nebraska has an etched glass window with a depiction of a ship on open waters. This ship may be the USS Olympia, commanded by George Dewey when he defeated Adm. Montojo's Squadron in 1898, beginning the Spanish-American War. Host Wes Cowan travels to Fremont, Nebraska and Philadelphia to see if the window can serve as a portal into a turning point in American foreign policy.
