The republican Mother has an excellent post on the Lindbergh Kidnapping.Their could be more than meets the eye there?
Here is a few random thoughts of my own.
1.) In today's culture of the anti-hero we really don't have any comprehension on just how great a heroic figure -not just famous but heroic- Charles Lindbergh was in his time.If he came out for or against any issue people would have stopped and listened to what he had to say.
2.) Lindbergh's maid committed suicide after being questioned about the kidnapping several times.
a.) Was there a suicide note and if so what did it say?
b.) She was under a lot of emotional distress from the all the questioning she was enduring.She used cyanide to kill her self.Why cyanide?Why not hang yourself,shoot yourself,or jump off a bridge,if your under emotional distress?
c.) Was the cyanide in liquid or capsule form?
d.) Where and who did she obtain the cyanide from?
e.) Assuming she killed herself via cyanide capsules,were they easy to obtain then?
3.) I remember reading in Gen. Norman Schwartzkoff's book,It Doesn't Take a Hero,that he 'claimed' his father,H. Norman Schwartzkoff,was an alcoholic.Whether he was an alcoholic at the time of the Lindbergh Kidnapping.I do not recall.
4.) Did the Lindbergh's ever question Hauptmann's guilt?If so,who did they suspect?
5.) If the kidnapping and subsequent murder of the Lindbergh's child was a Progressive plot,to what end was it made?Did they believe Charles Lindbergh could have been an opponent to FDR in the 1936 election or what?
