July 30, 1863: Henry Ford is Born
On this day in 1863, American automobile maker Henry Ford was born in Greenfield, Michigan. He incorporated the Ford Motor Company in 1903, and five years later, the company began producing the Model T, considered to be America’s first affordable car. The manufacture of the Model T relied on assembly line production, a revolutionary method developed by Ford himself.
