Summary

After his New York to Paris flight in May 1927, Charles Lindbergh was welcomed as a conquering hero wherever he went. That summer he flew his Spirit of St. Louis on a tour that took him to each of the 48 states then in the Union. Admirers might have greeted Lindbergh while wearing paper bowties like this one.
