Lindbergh Day in Atlanta

“Lindbergh Day” was held in Atlanta. Events began at 1 p.m. at Candler Field. Charles Lindbergh flew the “Spirit of St. Louis” over the city and landed at Candler Field at 2 p.m. The entourage left for downtown Atlanta, where a parade was held. Shortly before 4 p.m., Lindbergh arrived at Georgia Tech Stadium, where he gave an address to 20,000 spirited onlookers. From there, he traveled to the Biltmore Hotel for ceremonies with the governor of Georgia and Atlanta’s mayor. The next morning, Lindbergh was off to Spartanburg, South Carolina - the next stop on his scheduled tour.
