Mary Flannery O'Connor (1925)

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 05:00:00 GMT

(image) O'Conner was an American writer, considered a master of the short story form and the Southern Gothic style. In stories that reflect her strong Catholic faith, her often grotesque characters are placed in extreme situations that impel them toward redemption. O'Conner spent most of her life on her mother's farm in Georgia, where she died of lupus at the age of 39. When she was just six years old, she became a minor celebrity for teaching a chicken to do what? Discuss



Terrence Steven "Steve" McQueen (1930)

(image) After a tumultuous childhood, reform school, and a stint in the US Marines, McQueen studied acting in New York, earning money on the weekends by racing motorcycles. He gained attention on Broadway and went on to star as a cool, stoic loner in many films, including The Great Escape and Papillon. In Bullitt's famous car chase scene, he even did some of the stunt driving. When he was 18 years old, McQueen saved the lives of five fellow Marines in the Arctic. How?



Margaret of Anjou (1430)

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 GMT

(image) Margaret was queen consort of King Henry VI of England and ruled during her husband's frequent bouts of mental illness. With the king insane and childless, Richard, duke of York, was poised to inherit the throne. However, in 1453, Margaret gave birth to a son. The convoluted struggle over who would be king resulted in the War of the Roses, which, by 1471, had left most of those involved dead—except for Margaret. In May of that year, she led an army at the battle of Tewkesbury. Who won?
