Lunch & Learn – Charles Lindbergh’s Path to Glory

Historian Dick Campbell on The Story of Charles Lindbergh’s Path to Glory

The day after which nothing would ever be the same for him was Friday, May 20, 1927. That morning, alone in a little plane powered by a single engine, Charles A. Lindbergh took off from a muddy field on the outskirts of New York. His destination was Paris. If everything went according to plan – and from earliest childhood he had taken pains to see that everything always went according to plan – he would become the first person in history to fly non-stop from New York to Paris. This power-point presentation shows how Lindbergh achieved this historical event.
