Last Week's Trivia Question:
Question: In which war did Florence Nightingale earn the nickname, "The Lady with the Lamp?"
Crimean War. In 1854, Florence and a team of 38 nurses went to the Crimea to help wounded soldiers. Florence was gentle and kind, and the soldiers admired her. She was a source of great comfort to the wounded and sick. Florence's rounds continued into the night, and she carried a lamp with her to light her way. This is how she became known as "The Lady with the Lamp." Soldiers would kiss her shadow on the walls as she passed.

Did You Know…

Did you know the Sojourner Rover was named after Sojourner Truth?

Yes, when the Mars Pathfinder landed on Mars on July 4, 1997, its rover was named the Sojourner Rover after the abolitionist and champion of women's rights, Sojourner Truth. NASA chose the name Sojourner (which means "traveler") after a year-long world-wide essay competition among 3,500 students. In their essays, the students explained how the heroine's traits related to the exploration of Mars. The winner was Valerie Ambroise, age 12. The other names considered for the rover were: Marie Curie (chemist), Judith Resnik (astronaut), Sacagawea (guide and interpreter), Harriet Tubman (abolitionist and Underground Railroad conductor), and Amelia Earhart (aviator).

Who's Your Hero?

Ulysses S. Grant was a true hero in private as well as in public. He was our first civil rights President. He cared about the Indians and the freed slaves. The Treaty of Washington (1871) is mostly his work, though he's never gotten enough credit for it. It settled claims against Britain, and more important, it established neutrality and international arbitration to avoid war. This become the foundation for the World Court and League of Nations. My favorite Grant web site is the Ulysses S. Grant Network." - Nancy W. from Newark, Ohio
