MILWAUKEE -- A gold medal awarded in the early 1900s, is currently at the center of a legal fight. At stake is your access to a part of Milwaukee's history. We're talking about the medal that was awarded to a firefighter in 1906. One man went to incredible lengths to save a life -- now, his prize for doing so is also in need of saving.
