List of famous American men with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Famous People From United States

Americans come across as hard working, compassionate and friendly to the rest of the world. But when we specifically talk of American men, people are not so positive! How many times have we seen American men being portrayed as fat, dull and unintelligent by the media? Of course it is not at all true! Had American men really been so lazy and stupid, their country would not have risen to become one of the largest economies in the world today!

Quote Of The Day

The very “First American”, the renowned polymath Benjamin Franklin was a man whose brilliance knew no limits! Imagine what the world would have been like had it not been for his inventions like bifocals and Franklin stove. From the time the country gained independence, Americans have been struggling to achieve equal rights for all. Abolitionists, both white and black, fought slavery to procure a dignified life for everyone. American men have since long been involved not just in building up their own nation, but have made many invaluable contributions to the world. Imagine the world of literature without the witty works of Mark Twain or the music scenario had Elvis Presley not existed! How can we forget that the first person to walk on the moon was an American man! Browse this site to learn more about the various famous American men who made this world a better place.
