Lecture: The Great Texas Airship Mystery of 1897 – How did the Public React?
In the spring of 1897, hundreds of airships were sighted over the skies of Texas. But what were Texans really thinking during this time? Tui Snider scoured the newspapers from that two-month time period to reveal the many different theories and reactions people had to the mysterious objects in their skies. Along the way, she made some surprising discoveries! (This presentation will soon be released as a book.)
