Ferdinand von Zeppelin was the inventor of the rigid drigible or airship balloon. He was born July 8, 1838, in Konstanz, Baden, Germany, and educated at the Ludwigsburg Military Academy and the University of Tübingen. He entered the Prussian army in 1858. Zeppelin went to the United States in 1863 to work as a military observer for the Union army in the American Civil War and later explored the headwaters of the Mississippi River, making his first balloon flight while he was in Minnesota.
