[Original Airdate: February 3, 2014] Cameras capture the sculpture of Polish patriot and military man Tadeusz Kosciuszko being removed from its perch at Kosciuszko Park and shipped to an art restoration facility in Ohio for a complete overhaul and cleaning. The Polish general's life and his involvement with George Washington and the American Revolution is traced, as is his role in designing defense fortifications at West Point, his return to Poland and his struggle on behalf of Polish independence, his capture by the Tsar's forces and his eventual return to the United States in 1796.

First 10 minutes of the documentary film "The Fourth Partition" by Adrian Prawica and Rafal Muskala. The film's focus is on Chicago's Polish immigrants at the turn of the 20th century when over 4 million Poles immigrated to the U.S. between 1870-1920. More info: www.thefourthpartition.com At the Dawn of the 20th century, Chicago was the second largest city in the United States with over 2,000,000 residents. It was also the center of Polish culture and political activism in America. With Poland partitioned between Russia, Austria and Germany, over 4,000,000 Poles immigrated to the United States between 1870 and 1920 in search of a better life. In Chicago, they worked in some of the most dangerous factories and mills in the United States. In their neighborhoods, they built communities, churches, and most of all, aided their beloved Poland in her fight for independence. Their story is known as the "Fourth Partition".
