Excerpt from Rebels and Reformers: Biographies for Young People The twelve men chosen are t all perhaps the most famous, or what is commonly called the great est, that might have been selected. But that is one of the reasons we have written about them. While every one kws the story of Galileo, but few may have read about Tycho Brahe; Luther is a familiar figure and Savonarola, perhaps, only a name; many lives have been written of President Lincoln, but some have never read of William Lloyd Garrison; Garibaldi is rewned, but Mazzim s work for Italy has t often been described.
