Lindbergh's Complex Legacy - Presentation & Discussion @ Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site


What makes a person a good American? What makes someone a hero? Can someone stop being a hero? These questions and more will be explored in this program that examines Charles Lindbergh leading up to World War II. Lindbergh meant many things to many people. To some he was the "golden boy" who could do no wrong: a young, handsome, brave pilot who suffered the kidnapping and death of his first child. To others he was un-American, a traitor in support of Hitler and an isolationist against the United States’ entry into World War II. The program will include a staff presentation followed by a discussion session to gain a greater understanding of Lindbergh’s complex legacy.
