1--Anthony Wayne

I have never heard of Anthony Wayne before, and I thought I knew who all the key players in the American Revoultion were. He had a nickname of Mad Anthony though he became a huge general in the war. He was out on the battlefields and won many battles. In one the Monmouth, Wayne was left behind, by higher command, but kept fighting until reinforcements came. He was a very brave man who would have fought to the death. Many cities (Fort Wayne), counties, and bridges, schools, and highways are named after him. I think he looks a great deal like George Washington's brother--his cuter, more fashionable brother.

Have you ever heard of Anthony Wayne?
