MOORHEAD - Denman Weis was doing remodeling work in his south Moorhead home last week when he stumbled upon a piece of American history.

After removing paneling from the walls of a basement closet, he discovered a bayonet with a long, triangular-shaped blade resting within the studs.

"I'm ex-military, so I knew right away what it was," Weis said.
