Galileo Galilei (15 February 1564 - 8 January 1642) was a Tuscan (Italian) physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the scientific revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations, and support for Copernicanism. Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy," the "father of modern physics," the "father of science," and "the Father of Modern Science." The motion of uniformly accelerated objects, taught in nearly all high school and introductory college physics courses, was studied by Galileo as the subject of kinematics. His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter, named the Galilean moons in his honor, and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, improving compass design.

"Garibaldi was a patriot who started up a revolt in Sicily and took possession of the island, then passed over to Naples and overthrew the tyrant. This was done without the consent of Sardinia, but that kingdom profited none the less from its results. About the same time trouble with the papal states had led to the sending of a Sardinian army into the pope's dominions, and the annexation of the greater part of them to Sardinia. Garibaldi, after his success in Naples and Sicily, saluted the Sardinian king as King of Italy, and by a vote of the people Naples and Sicily joined Sardinia. A parliament of united Italy was opened in 1861, but ten years passed before unity was complete."—Colby, 1899

Piers Gaveston, 1st Earl of Cornwall (c. 1284 – 19 June 1312) was the favorite, and possibly lover, of King Edward II of England. A Gascon by birth, Piers was the son of Sir Arnaud de Gabaston, a soldier in service to King Edward I of England. Arnaud had been used as a hostage by Edward twice; on the second occasion, Arnaud escaped captivity, and fled to England with his son. Both then entered the royal household, where Gaveston behaved so well and so virtuously that the King declared him an example for his own son, Prince Edward.

"Major General Sheridan riding along the lines after the Battle of Fisher's Hills, Va., September 22nd, 1864. Our illustration representing General Sheridan riding along the lines after his victory at Fisher's Hill is indeed a spirited one. General Sheridan's whole force was soon in possession of the enemy's works, driving them like sheep. The Confederates threw down their arms and fled in confusion, abandoning most of their artillery, twenty pieces and 1,100 prisoners, with caissons and ammunition. General Sheridan was no boaster, but he was heard to say: 'I do not think there ever was an army so badly routed.' And the men who were thus beaten were the veterans whom Stonewall Jackson had so often led to battle in this very valley, who should have been inspired by past victory."&mdash; Frank Leslie, 1896
