Effigy of Charles Lindbergh Sr.
Charles Lindbergh, Sr., ran for governor of Minnesota in 1918, with support from the Nonpartisan League. At the time, many Minnesotans were suspicious of the Nonpartisan League. The League's connections to Socialism, isolationism, and recent immigrants led many to believe that the organization was unpatriotic.
This image shows an effigy, or a model meant to be destroyed, of Charles Lindbergh hanging from a lamppost in Stanton, Goodhue County, Minnesota. Those who hung this effigy likely saw Lindbergh as dangerous or suspicious, due to his connection to the Nonpartisan League.
