Tell us who was the greatest American to you and why?
Probably Andrew Carnegie. He built America and then proceeded to give the profits away to charity.
Bill Cosby. Great comedian. I haven't followed his career in the past few years, but I'm sure he's still going strong.
Interesting question. I'd have to say it isn't any specific person, rather ANY of those that have given their life for our country. To me THAT'S the ultimate sacrifice and the ultimate American.
Tecumseh...... Just because it might trigger one or two posters......
He was a great inventor. I have one of his gasoline motors in my lawn mower.
I have a feeling that we won't see too many libs posting on this thread because most of them HATE America. Sad, but true.
I know, Louis-Joseph de Montcalm. Canada is part of North America............
Too many great Americans to count. But one of the of the less-greater Americans was an Italian map-maker who gave our country its name.
Otherwise, we would have been named "Columbia" or something.
Louis and Clark. They're the ones that found a way to the west coast and back, the Corps of Discovery, 1805.
Separate names with a comma.
