On 142nd Street in New York City stands an obelisk that honors the soldiers of the 369th Infantry Regiment - better known as the Harlem Hellfighters. This African-American combat unit fought valiantly in combat overseas during World War I, yet their greatest battles were waged by fellow Americans. Jockeys have been racing horses at Southern California's Santa Anita Park track for over a century. Though many may claim to be "dying" to win, so far just one has actually done so...and then lived to tell the tale. And the legendary Pantheon in Paris houses a bust of a 19th century Frenchman whose invention brought literacy to the blind. The innovation was created with the very instrument that took away his sight.

The Tower of London is an ancient fortress designed to defend and imprison. But few realize it also became the inspiration for a duo of tricksters to make an audacious bid for the throne. A large sculpture in downtown Wichita, Kansas depicts a scene of customers at a drugstore lunch counter. In fact, it commemorates a groundbreaking moment in the struggle for civil rights in America. And on a quiet block in Monrovia, California is the home of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, Upton Sinclair. Few may remember that he almost won election as California's governor - but instead became the target of the first political smear campaign in U.S. electoral history.
