Charles Augustus Lindbergh (February 4, 1902 - August 26, 1974) is an American aviator, author, inventor, explorer, and social activist. He gained worldwide fame for his 3,600 mile non-stop flight from New York to Paris in 1927. He flew his single seat, single engine plane Spirit of St. Louis to accomplish this feat. The Lindbergh cross-Atlantic flight inspired a generation of WWII pilots and was heavily celebrated with buttons and other souvenirs.
