All throughout American history there has many intelligent individuals that have played significant role in our society. I believe Thomas Edison has been one of the most influential people. He was an American inventor who is considered one of America’s leading businessman. People today credit him for helping to build America’s economy during the nation’s vulnerable early years. Thomas had a very good childhood and was a very hard worker as a teenager.
Peter Cooper was born to his Dutch parents on February 12, 1791 in New York, New York. At his early years Cooper did not attend school, for trades was thought to be more useful and important than education. So he worked along with his father in the industrial area. Cooper grew up to be an American inventor, manufacturer, and philanthropist-this is someone who donates his or her time, money, and/or reputation to charitable causes- which is exactly what he did for the police and firemen, public schools, and public sanitation. As an American inventor Peter Cooper invented the "Tom Thumb", which was a locomotive that by 1830 was pulling forty people at ten miles an hour.
His father and mother were both Scandinavian immigrants and neither were well educated. His father, Methias “Matt” Warren, born in Norway, worked as a car repairman and car inspector for the Southern Pacific Railroad (White, 1982). His mother, Christine “Chrystal” Hernlund Warren, was born in Sweden and came to America as a baby, but grew up in Chicago and Minneapolis. Chrystal and Matt met in Minneapolis, and after marrying moved to Los Angeles in 1889. His mother perhaps had less influence on his life than his father, because his father taught him some enduring lessons.
Though this, we can understand his perspective and will to achieve greatness. We will truly be able to understand what factors contribute to the goals and attributions of this great man. Understanding Abraham Lincoln’s child life would help us

Where one grows up can significantly impact one’s life in the long run. John Steinbeck was born on February 27, 1902 in Salinas, California to Olive Hamilton and John Ernst Steinbeck. The third of four children, he was expected to do the same chores as his older sisters Elizabeth Ainsworth and Esther Rodgers, and younger sister Mary Dekker. He had a comfortable childhood with his mother, a retired school teacher, and his father, a manager at a local flour mill. Even so he had some challenges.
He was born on January 15, 1929 (Brian). His name was originally Michael because he was named after his father (Interesting Dr. Martin). When he was little he played with white boys (Discovery Education). The children’s mom said Martin couldn’t play with them anymore (Discovery Education). Martin’s mom explained to him why that had happened (Discovery Education).

The Great Grandfather of the Prince of the Hamsters’ Greatest Realm began his story of a long time ago event. “I was the youngest of my family,” the Great Grandfather said. “All of my brothers and sisters were trained in the secrets of survival and the secrets of the Magic Mirror. I had to wait a long time to become one of them.”
My parents moved to the United States after they had my second brother; although both of my parents managed to finish high school, they were never able to achieve a high paying job casting my mom to become a housewife and my father to take a low income job as a car mechanic. I am the second youngest of five children, but there are 13 people currently living in our household. My grandfather has to be taken care
