Wednesday, January 9

Fifteen miles of fame

The first hot air balloon flight in the United States, which was witnessed by George Washington, took place on Jan. 9, 1793. The 45 minute flight started in Philadelphia and ended in Gloucester County, N.J.

Jean-Pierre Blanchard traveled about 15 miles and even took a small dog with him.

And I was there, of course.
