I have a new game. We have to see if we can come up with the names of famous people by the letter of the alphabet going from A to Z. You can use Ethier First or Last names to fill a given letter. The only Rules are if you use a Last name, you have to put it first, followed by a comma and then the first name! (EX: if you use Willian Shakespear for S you would write: Shakespear, William), and you have to say where they come from.

That said, let's get started:

A- Abraham Lincoln (16th President, USA)

B is next. . .

Famous chimpanzee...made some movies with Ronald Reagan, but Ronny stopped working with Bonzo because Bonzo kept making him look stupid. Was supposed to be the first chimp in space but was replaced when they found him to be such a good actor (I mean Bonzo not Ronald Reagan).

Fraser, Sir James George

- Author of the seminal work The Golden Bough.

In this sacred grove there grew a certain tree round which at any time of the day, and probably far into the night, a grim figure might be seen to prowl. In his hand he carried a drawn sword, and he kept peering warily about him as if at every instant he expected to be set upon by an enemy. He was a priest and a murderer; and the man for whom he looked was sooner or later to murder him and hold the priesthood in his stead. Such was the rule of the sanctuary.

Quantrill, William Clarke

(July 31, 1837 – June 6, 1865), was a pro-Confederate guerrilla fighter during the American Civil War whose actions, particularly a bloody raid on Lawrence, Kansas, remain controversial to this day.

Quantrill’s actions remain controversial to this day. Some historians remember him as an opportunistic, bloodthirsty outlaw, while others continue to view him as a daring soldier and local folk hero. Something of this celebrity later rubbed off on several ex-Raiders—Jesse and Frank James, and Cole and Jim Younger—who went on in the late 1860s to apply Quantrill's hit-and-run tactics to bank and train robbery. The William Clarke Quantrill Society continues to research and celebrate his life and deeds.
