Samuel Colt – 1814

In 1836, Colt received the patent that would change the West. His revolving-cylinder pistol, U.S. Patent No. 138 would fire six-shot before needing to be reloaded. This revolutionary design would not be an immediate success, though. It would take American expansion and war to convince the United States government to invest in Colt’s armament.

Mary Ann Bickerdyke – 1817

During the American Civil War, Nurse Bickerdyke served as an agent of the U.S. Sanitary Commission and improved or established several field hospitals for the Union.

Charles Mayo – 1865

Along with his brother William, Charles Mayo founded the Mayo Clinic. They were exposed to the medical field at a young age through their experiences with their physician father. Both became surgeons with expertise in many methods and procedures.

Alice Dunbar Nelson – 1875

The American poet published her first book in 1895. She wrote extensively for newspaper columns as well as essays and short stories. Nelson was also a prominent member of the Harlem Renaissance.

Joseph Hansen – 1923

The American crime novelist is best known for his series featuring investigator Dave Brandstetter.
