6. Wright Brothers were not from North Carolina

 

Orville was born in Dayton, Ohio. Wilbur was born in Indiana.

They developed the Flyer in Dayton and continued to fly and perfect their machine in Dayton. North Carolina was just the location for their first recorded successful flight. Saying they are from Carolina is like saying Eli Manning plays for the Colts because he won a super bowl in Indy.


I know that has nothing to do with the OP, but Ohio people will use any chance they can get to rectify the fallacy that the WB were from North Carolina.
