None of proof that AGBell was in Milan, Italy.

Some people claimed that Alexander Graham Bell (AGBell) was in Milan, Italy for the Second International Congress on Education of the Deaf known as 1880 Infamous Milan Conference where 160 delegates out of 164 voted to ban sign language around the world. AGBell never in any form or shape show his soul at the conference at all. The majority of delegates were Italians and French—there were several British, Americans, Swedish, Belgian, and German. Five Americans. No, AGBell is not one of them.

None had shown the citizenship of Canadian. Alexander Graham Bell was born in Scotland and moved to Canada as a young kid, and became a Canadian citizen—and moved to America and begin hate crimes there. Did Alexander Graham Bell ever got his American citizenship? Anyone knows? The answer is that AGBell, either as Canadian or American never been in Milan, Italy for the conference at all. He was in America when the conference began on September 6th until the fateful 11th.  The books below has shown none of proof that AGBell was in Milan, either. Oh, wait, there are more books that will say the same thing.
