For the past few weeks, the Wright Brothers’ First Flight Photograph has been competing in the Ohio History Connection’s third annual Ohio Memory Madness tournament – a bracket of sixty-four historical events from across the state all that competed for the unique distinction of being named the 2015 Ohio Memory Madness Champion – at: http://www.ohiohistoryhost.org/madness/.
The First Flight Photo made it almost all the way! We were defeated in the championship round by “Freedom Summer Volunteers in Oxford, Ohio,” submitted by the Smith Library of Regional History.
However, the First Flight Photo received over 1000 votes throughout the course of the six-round tournament, and we are still so proud and pleased to have come this far. Thank you to everyone who voted! We could not have made it this far without your support!
And congratulations to our friends at the Smith Library of Regional History!
