"American Digger": Ric Savage unearths a slave identity badge In North Carolina

On "American Digger" (Wednesday, 10 p.m. ET on Spike) Wednesday night, Ric Savage and his team were hunting for relics of slavery in North Carolina.

Suddenly, the almost suspiciously sharp-eyed Savage spotted something in the dirt. It was a slave's identity badge dating from 1838.

An emotional Savage reflected on the importance of the small tag. "You hold it in your hand," he said, "and you think how far we’ve come, right up to the point of having a president who’s half African-American."

Hear Ric yell with excitement on "American Digger" every Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
