100 Most Influential Americans in History (60-51)

billkozyBillkozy on 12/11/2008

100MostInfluentialAmericansinHistory6051 Photo At the end of 2006, Atlantic Monthly magazine polled 10 important historians as to who they thought were the most influential figures in American history. The result was a Top 100 list of those figures, a list sure to instigate a great deal of debate amongst readers.

Was Ronald Reagan really more influential than Thomas Paine? Rachel Carson more than Frederick Douglass? Bill Gates more than John Quincy Adams? Elvis Presley more than Ralph Nader? Babe Ruth more than Frank Lloyd Wright? Louis Armstrong more than Ernest Hemingway? Maybe yes, maybe no. It's all subjective of course.

In any event here are the historical figures that placed 60th to 51st. May the debates begin!

Please rate the quiz afterward in terms of its historical influence. Hmmm, on second thought...make that in terms of its trivia value!
