Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Victoria Woodhull (very interesting woman), Abraham Lincoln, Jane Hull, Susan B. Anthony, Daniel Webster, Robert E. Lee, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Edgar Allen Poe, the Fox sisters, Joseph Smith - there's literally hundreds of influential people in the 1800's. Go to Wikipedia on any of these and you'll find out interesting things about all of them.
