Charles Lindbergh: American Hero and Nazi Sympathizer

Charles Lindbergh made the first solo non-stop transatlantic flight in his airplane, the Spirit of St. Louis, in a thirty-three hour window between 20 May 1927 and 21 May 1927. He received instant fame, the Congressional Medal of Honor (he was a reserve officer in the army), and a prize of $15,000 in cash. He was a strong “isolationist” as they were known then and a vocal supporter of Nazi Germany. On 11 September 1941 in a speech in Des Moines, Iowa, Lindbergh stated three groups were working to drag American in the Second World War: “The British, the Jews, and the Roosevelt Administration.”
