Ormsby looked over the crowd as the rain began to fall. This was a life-long dream for him. Would it be overshadowed by the early November weather? He noticed his speaker settling in a coach to ascend the hill. At least the dedication would occur, even if no one saw it.
As the coach climbed the muddy road, a mile-long cavalcade of spectators hiding under umbrellas followed in their Sunday best. Upon reaching the top, the speaker took his position as the spectators gathered around. The rains poured, yet nothing could drown the excitement of the day. History was being made and all wanted to be a part of it.
The story begins in Morganfield, Kentucky, on July 28, 1809, with the birth of Ormsby MacKnight Mitchel, though some record it as August 28, 1810. Following his father's death in 1814, Mitchel’s mother took her children north to Ohio, settling in Lebanon. He was able to attend school as his older siblings helped support the family, yet at age 12 Mitchel himself needed to leave his formal instruction to obtain a job. However, he never stopped learning as he continued to educate himself.
