Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer ~ If you would like to read more, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventures_of_Huckleberry_Finn Tony Brandstetter

    Thanks for that. It's easy just to think of Anthony as the woman on the obscure US $1 coin, and not pay attention to why she's featured.

    ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY - Volleyball was invented - On February 9, 1895, in Holyoke, Massachusetts (USA), William G. Morgan, a YMCA physical education director, created a new game called Mintonette as a pastime to be played (preferably) indoors and by any number of players. The game took some of its characteristics from tennis and handball. Another indoor sport, basketball, was catching on in the area, having been invented just ten miles (sixteen kilometers) away in the city of Springfield, Massachusetts, only four years before. Mintonette was designed to be an indoor sport, less rough than basketball, for older members of the YMCA, while still requiring a bit of athletic effort. Tony Brandstetter

    Walt Disney, and Benjamin Franklin are my favorite on this list. Another great part of Benjamin Franklin story that I love that many people don't know is he was a vegetarian. The reason for this is during his life, meat was very expensive. He choose to use this money on books. He read books of all variety and thus became the man we know today. He found a way to come up with the money he needed to find his education. Just imagine if he still choose to eat meat, how the world would be different today.
