Celebrate the Birth of the Burger

on National Cheeseburger Day!

September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day, or so say the powers that decide these national days.

But did you know September 18th marks a more important hamburger anniversary? Historical evidence points to Friday, September 18th, 1885 as the day the burger was born!

Wouldn't your audience be delighted to learn: 

  • Why did two young Ohio brothers decide to switch from their unique pork sausage patty sandwich and use ground beef instead?  
  • How did Charles and Frank Menches merit a prime location at the Erie County Fair despite their age and experience?
  • What gave Frank the idea to name the Brothers' new invention the "Hamburg Sandwich"?
  • And other fascinating facts about the day that has become known as "Birth of the Burger Day"! 

Hamburgers are a favorite fast food and reporters love to include a fact or two about this popular American sandwich. Don't get caught repeating one of the fabled myths about the origin of the hamburger. Carosa's book, Hamburger Dreams: How Classic Crime Solving Techniques Helped Crack the Case of America's Greatest Culinary Mystery, has over 300 thoroughly researched footnotes that explain the history of the mystery behind who really sold the first hamburger!
