  2. Amelia Earhart Born: 1897 Atchison, Kansas In 1932 Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean alone. Also was the first woman to be awarded the Distinguished flying cross by U.S Congress. Amelia encountered dangers during a rocky flight and to this day her fate is unknown as her plane mysteriously disappeared in 1937. “Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.”

  3. Rosa Parks Born: 1913 Tuskegee, Alabama Rosa Parks was an African American civil rights activist. She played a significant role in a 1955 boycott that lasted 382 days. The boycott was triggered when Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on the bus. She endured rough times and struggles to help civil rights movements in the united states. “I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day…”

  4. Joan of Arc Born: 1412 Domremy, France Joan of Arc was a French Heroine who later became a saint of the Roman Catholic church. Like most peasants she never learned to read or write. She was thought to be clairvoyant and had religious visions and hearing voices of what were believed to be saints. After much ridicule, Joan lead a military battalion to numerous victories. “I place trust in God, my creator, in all things, I love him with all my heart.”

  5. Harriet Tubman Born: 1820 Dorchester County, Maryland An African American woman who helped hundreds of slaves escape to freedom. She became the most famous leader of the underground railroad. At times, rewards for her capture totaled about $40,000. “I grew up like a neglected weed -- ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it.”

  6. Mother Teresa Born: 1910 Skopje, Macedonia A Roman Catholic nun who received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her work with the poor. Mother Teresa found a religious order in Calcutta, which provided food for the needy and operates hospitals, schools, orphanages, youth centers, and shelters for lepers and the dying poor. Mother Teresa received numerous awards for her work with the needy over her lifetime. “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
