    Surely they are in your textbook or available by searching via Google.  Or were they discussed in class?

    I did not study American history, yet I know the answers to 4 of your 7 questions, so they must be popular heroes in the U.S.

    p.s.  If you are female, (or male) read about Nellie Bly in your spare time.  I read "Eighty days : Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland's history-making race around the world" By Goodman, Matthew.   She was an intrepid investigative reporter. I was blown away by where she went and what she did to get a story. How many people voluntarily enter an insane asylum as a patient?  Miss Bisland was a Southern lady who wrote about books; but taking the assignment to go around the world in the opposite direction and beat Nellie back to New Jersey was intrepid too for a ladylike woman.  Really.  Read about Nellie Bly's adventures.

    You have the sum of the world's knowledge literally at your fingertips.  All you have to do is to do a Google search of these people.  Then you will know who they were for the rest of your life.  I suggest you let your fingers do the walking and not rely on random strangers giving you (possibly incorrect) answers.

    No, what you need to do is get off the computer and break open your textbook, no one on here is interested in doing your homework for you.

    And to think, a quick Google search would have provided all your answers by now.
