Aviator Charles Lindbergh sits with others during an outdoor ceremony at Northwestern Field in Detroit, Michigan. "In August of 1927, Lindy returned to the city of his birth and a hero's welcome. Ceremonies were held at his birthplace on West Forest. Later he would speak at a huge open field in Detroit. According to reports in the News "30,000 squirming, shrieking, madcap children in a crowd of 60,000 spectators in holiday delirium, greeted Lindbergh at Northwestern Field. Never before had Northwestern been the scene of such pandemonium," from "Lucky Lindy and his ties to Detroit," by Patricia Zacharias in The Detroit News.
