Whether you knew it or not, many people's names have become part of the English language. One of the more well-known examples is the word 'boycott.' Captain Charles Cunningham Boycott was a land manager in Ireland. Tenants' rents were high and they wanted a reduction. Boycott said no. To force the issue, many people would not work for him. Local businesses would not serve or deal with Boycott. Thus, a refusal to work or use a business became called a boycott.

I'll provide the name or the circumstance on how the word was created. You provide the correct answer.

The picture to the left is related to question #10.
