Did Charles Lindbergh run for president?

Without any formal party endorsement, Lindbergh sure went through all the motions- without actually declaring candidacy. He was believed to have been connecterd ex-officio with the German-American Bund ( federation)- a Nazi Organization. actually any involvement in elective politics by an active duty officer of the Us Armed Forces- which he was- a Colonel- a Field-Grade officer ., violated Mil Regulations of the time- since probably intensified. retirees are another matter- witness Eisenhower.- but it is against the law for a Commissioned officer of the Us Military ( all branches) to run for active political office while in service time.

Reeve Lindbergh is the youngest child of world renowned Charles Lindbergh, the famous aviator who was first to fly over the Atlantic Ocean.

They rented an Aeronica with room for two and he and each of his children would fly as he gave each a lesson.

Who was Bruno Hauptmann and what happened to him?

Bruno Hauptmann was a German-American carpenter who was tried and convicted for the kidnapping of the Charles Lindberg baby. He was ultimately executed.

It is true, Bruno Richard Hauptmann was tried, convicted, and killed for the kidnapping/killing of the famous aviator's baby, but he was really innocent. At the time, it looked as though in some points he was guilty, but later research has shown that he was innocent. Some people believed even then that he was innocent, and also, today some people believe he was guilty. I believe strongly - although I don't know who REALLY commited the crime - that Mr. Richard (he was called Richard, but yellow journalism promoted the name Bruno because it seemed more criminal-like) Hauptmann was innocent and murdered at a young age.

:::;;;

he was a German carprter how got acused of murder of 20 year old Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr.,

Anyone who seriously studies the Lindbergh case knows Hauptmann was guilty as charged. The wood from the ladder came from his attic; he misspelled the same words the same way for the police as in the ransom letters; he was found with the marked money in his garage; he quit his job 3 days after the kidmapping but had plenty of spending money after the ransom was paid. There is no real doubt he was guilty; that's why his widow's appeals never went anywhere.

In your opinion did Charles A Lindbergh kill his son?

Opinion

Bruno Hauptmann was executed for the crime, however, many believe that he was innocent. The DNA evidence that could have potentially been used today to find the real killer, disappeared courtesy of the Lindbergh family. There are a few people who are suspected to have killed the boy, Charles Lindbergh is one of them. There have been reports that he had a violent streak, and there are those who believe he did kill his son and tried to make it look like a kidnapping, and some believe that a fear of DNA proving that to be the case more than likely is what compelled the family to hide all DNA evidence. This doesn't demonize them, as they probably just want to let this lay to rest as most who were involved in the case at the time have now died. But it would be nice to know the truth, and it is a question in history that may always remain unanswered.

Opinion

Look at all the facts. There are some strange signs and sights. Kidnapping by its very nature is a crime that lends itself to faking. If Lindbergh did do something rash he knew he would probably never be charged, being such a popular hero. The possibility of some kind of direct (Charles) or indirect (family member or house staff) murder cannot be discarded. One important witness, a Viola Sharp or Sharpe, committed suicide during the lengthy trial.

Why did Charles Lindbergh and Henry Ford oppose the US going to war against Germany?

Henry Ford was known to have pro-Nazi feeling. For what reason I cannot say. Charles Lindbergh was world famous after his flight across the Atlantic Ocean. He made a tour of Europe later and when in Germany was shown their top secret aircraft, and was even allow to fly one. His reasons for opposing war could have been many. We were in a Depression, and needed to concentrate our efforts towards recovery. Many Americans resented the actions of the English and French for not listening to President Wilson after the war, and their actions pretty clearly were a cause of WW II. Many of us thought WW II was their fault, and we were not going to war to save them again. Then too I think Lindbergh was greatly impressed with Germany and how advance their Airforce was over ours (which was true.) He may have felt that we could never catch up with them, so it would be best to avoid a war and mind our own business. Impressions I have gained over the years. John
