Welcome to America Comes Alive!, a site I created to share little-known stories of America’s past. These stories are about Americans—people just like you—who have made a difference and changed the course of history. Look around the site and find what inspires you.

This Day in History

On June 24, 1997, the investigation into the sighting of a UFO near Roswell, NM, in July of 1947 was officially closed by the US Air Force. This related to July 8, 1947 when Air Force officials announced they had recovered the wreckage of a “flying disk” in the area. This caught the public’s fancy, and even with all types of rebuttals from the government, Roswell continues to thrive as a tourist destination for UFO enthusiasts. Each July Roswell hosts a UFO Festival.
