Carol hides her old love letters concerning a man from her past from Ed. Ed breaks down and reads the letters and pays the guy a visit to check him out. Mike and Nancy are concerned that their baby will eventually learn of past indiscretions and go down the path of revisionist history. Meanwhile, an academic historian questions the role Stuckeyville's founder played in a Revolutionary war battle that is reinacted every year. Ed tries to help General Stuckey's descendant (the town historian/barber) maintain his family's integrity while saving Stuckeyville's historic reputation.
