Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
That is U. S. Grant

Good Morning Ray,Nice try, but it comes up short.PJM
Pope George,No, your answer is not correct.Perhaps I will win today?PJM
President Benjamin Harriso??
Anon,It is not President Benjamin HarrisoPJM
is it john muir?
Joe,No, that is not going to be a winner.Hmmm . . . maybe I should start planning my victory celebration now.PJM
Henry David Thoreau?
Anon,Not Brigham Young PJM
Geezer,No, your entry is not correct.Wow, I think I have stumped you all!PJM
Czar Nicholas Romanov?
Pope George,It is not Czar Nicholas Romanov.Perhaps I should call MRS. PJM and discuss potential victory breakfast for in the morning.PJM
i'll be damned if it doesn't look like walt whitman, but i don't see how that could be right...
Good morning. Based on that profile, I'll go with Alexander Graham Bell.
Darn.The evil Nate Maas has once again foiled my dreams of victory.Yes, it is the beloved inventor of the telephone, Alexandar Graham Bell. I had hoped the picture would present him enough out of the normal context to catch you all off guard.Next week will be different, Oh yes, it will be different.PJM
My sweetie thought the woman looked like Clara Barton, so I looked for her family. Morris Whitman doesn't appear to have been bearded, but Walt Whitman certainly did. That's my guess
I noticed that he has a hole in the sole of his shoe.R
Everyone looks bored -- maybe they forgot to bring their iPhones?
Saved the day again, Nate. I thoughtyou might be away somewhere.
Thanks Ray. Sometimes I'm away camping with the Boy Scouts (as I will be next weekend), but these last couple weeks have just been hard, so I needed the extra sleep.PJM, consolation breakfasts are yummy too.
What are they doing anyway? I thought at first maybe the girl was poking at a fire, but I dont thing Alexander would have his hand that close. Is that an old oild filter just below what the girl is holding? I'm thinking maybe he invented the oil filter before he realized that the engine hadn't come along yet, at least not with pressurized oil systems. Now with the dissapointment of his useless invention they are trying to burn it.
I can't even tell there is someone smoking a cigar in the picture! Congrats to all who could make guesses and to Nate, and of course PJM for such a fun contest - again!
