Tuesday is the 90th anniversary of a visit to Jacksonville by aviation legend Charles Lindbergh that he made a few months after his historic flight across the Atlantic Ocean.  Ed Booth Jr., past president of the Jacksonville Historical Society, gave us a sense of just what a huge event Lindbergh’s visit was for the city.
