Charles Lindbergh, who in the peacetime of May 1927 made aviation history by becoming the first pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, was in 1941 the spokesman for an isolationist organization called the “America First Committee” whose goal was to keep the United States out of war. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, today judged one of the great presidents in the nation’s history, promised mothers and fathers in a campaign speech in Boston that he would not send any of their sons to fight a war in a foreign nation.

The Yule Blog: Dec. 7
18 days until Christmas
Improve your holiday photos with props and candid shots
If your family’s seasonal traditions include taking a holiday portrait, you probably have a stack of photos that all pretty much look the same. Rather than adding another stilted family photo to the pile this year, consider breaking out of the mold with a candid portrait instead.
