Leonardo da Vinci. I'd have been his assistant, without hesitation, if I had been around back then. I still would be, now, if I had a time machine.
Leonardo Da Vinci
Mr. Abraham Lincoln.
That's pretty funny.
I once saw a very good documentary where it was speculated that he invented a death ray. That was fun to watch.
Lots to choose from, but one of my very favorites is Benedict Arnold.....he was a brilliant general who did a lot for our country, but then was ignored and pushed back by his own government........he spent tons of his own money during the Revolutionary War, and was never compensated for it......
Joan of Arc
I don't really have a favorite. I've never been big on reading biographies so all I know about most is from movies and novels. :)
