Model Son Inherits Civil War Fleet

During his lifetime, history buff William Atteridge built more than a thousand model replicas of Civil War ships. Atteridge started building models from scratch in the mid-1970s, and over the next 40 years, he worked his way through the rosters of Union and Confederate ships. Atteridge left this model collection to his son Larry, who learned the entire fleet is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The ships are the subject of a new episode of Strange Inheritance with Jamie Colby. It premieres on Fox Business Network Monday, February 27 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
