Greatest Americans

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Over at Right Wing News, John Hawkins has a followup to last week's Worst Americans poll: Conservative Bloggers Select The 25 Greatest Figures In American History.

I quickly banged out my list — bolded names made the Top 25.

John Adams
Neil Armstrong
Norman Borlaug
Luther Burbank
Andrew Carnegie
George Washington Carver
Vint Cerf
Thomas Edison
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Philo Farnsworth
Henry Ford
Lou Gehrig
Billy Graham
Thomas Jefferson
Audie Murphy
Ronald Reagan
Mark Twain
George Washington
John Wayne
Wright brothers

If I'd given it a minute's more thought, I'd have fit Martin Luther King Jr. into the list.

I would have liked to have seen John "Forty Second" Boyd make mention somewhere, but alas he is lost to obscurity.

Martin Luther King is a good one, but whenever I see him on a list, I also want to see Frederick Douglass.
