The Lindbergh Legacy:
A Private quest for the truth by Mike Holfeld
Charles Lindbergh made the first solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic in his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis, in May 1927. This feat made “Lucky Lindy” not only an American hero, but America’s darling. The country’s fascination with Lindbergh forced him to seek an escape from the public eye. He built Highfields, a modest home just outside of Hopewell, New Jersey. Yet the very place he chose for his sanctuary became the scene of what would be known as “the crime of the century”.
Like the Kennedys, The Lindberghs were embraced as American royalty. Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s first born was dubbed “Little Eaglet”. On a cold blustery night in March, 1932 Charles Jr. was kidnapped. The crime riveted the attention—and broke the heart of 1932 America. Bruno Richard Hauptmann, a German Immigrant, was found guilty in 1935 and executed in 1936. But Hauptmann protested his innocence to the last.
