Wright Brothers Day

December 17 is Wright Brothers Day. It commemorates the first flight made in a mechanically propelled craft, which was made by Orville and Wilbur Wright on 17 December 1903. There is an annual presidential proclamation.

Some of my ancestors may have read this account of the Wright brothers' flight, which was published in the Nashville American.
