December of 1903 was a time when the Wright family prepared for the holidays. It was also a time when they awaited word from North Carolina's Outer Banks where Wilbur and Orville were attempting to be the first to take flight in their heavier-than-air machine. Especially eager were their nieces and nephews whose "Uncle Will" and "Uncle Orv" were about to make history.Join a ranger for a story of hope and home in "Christmas with the Wright Family, 1903".
