           A.  “A few miles away a young minister was dying of a lung disease. He had come to America only a few months before to start a new life with his bride. A graduate of England’s Cambridge University,  the minister believed strongly in education. When he learnt he was going to die, he wrote a will.  In it, he left half of his estate to the new college in Massachusetts”

                                                       (John Harvard)

            B.  “After saying his farewell, he started home to Mount Vernon. On the way he stopped in Annapolis, Maryland, where the Continental Congress was meeting.  He told the Congress that, with peace, his work was done. He led his country to glory independence. “I retire from the great theater of action,” he said. He was leaving public life for ever, he thought. Saying his good-bye, he mounted his favourite horse, Nelson. By riding hard, he reached Mount Vernon on Christmas Eve”.

                                                       ( George Washinton)

             C.  “Suddenly a little girl rushed up to him. She put his head in her arms and begged for his life. Maybe this was prearranged: maybe not. No one can know for sure but the important  thing was John Smith was saved. The men with the clubs drew back and John was helped to his feet”.


              D.  “She quickly stepped into her new role. Her first major project was the historical restoration of the White House. She created a White House Fine Arts Committee to guide and authenticate the work, created the post of White House curator, oversaw publication of a guidebook for visitors, established the White House library and Rose Garden,  and promoted legislation to raise the presidential mansion to museum status”.

                                                        (Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy)

             E.   “A US producer of films, especially cartoons. He won 39 Oscars for his work and people remember him as one of the greatest producers of family entertainment. He also had a television programme  and  created the original  US amusement park in 1955 at Anaheim, California”.

                                                           (Walt Disney)

             F.  “At private Lakeside school he discovered his interest in software and began programming computers at age 13. Then he went on to Harvard University. But he never finished college. When he left, he knew exactly what to do. He started up his own computer company. And there should  be a computer in the pocket of everybody in the whole world”.

                                                             (Bill Gates)

            G.    “He is the imaginary person who represents the US and its government. He became an official symbol in 1961. He has a white beard  and wears red, white and blue clothes with stars on his tall hat. He was probably named after “Uncle” Sam Wilson (1766-1854) who examined army supplies for the US government during the war of 1812. During both world wars, a picture of him appeared on posters telling young men that they should join the armed forces”.

                                                                     (Uncle Sam)
