Check out this page for the most famous and influential people from the United States of America.

What would the world be like if the Wright brothers hadn’t invented the airplane? What if Thomas Alva Edison never existed? How incomplete the world of entertainment would have been if not for Hollywood!  The United States of America is a country which boasts of having the most diversity not just in terms of population, but also in terms of geography and climatic conditions. Melting pot. Is there any other term that better describes this rich and colorful land where various cultures, ethnic groups, races and religions amalgamate?

The US is one place which welcomes peoples from different countries all over the world to create one harmonious whole. The US is the land of freedom, hope and opportunities to which people from other countries have flocked to since centuries. Since gaining independence from the British colonial rule on the 4th of July 1776, Americans have contributed a lot to the world economy and the development of science and technology. Today the US is home to some of the best writers, artists, actors, scientists, politicians and philosophers. The US’s contribution to the world technology is something Americans can be really proud of. Americans have enriched the world in so many ways!
