    King Jame VI of England.

    While he was king he never started a war or invaded anyone. Taxes were low and he kept them that way.

    When there was an assassination attempt against the gov't, he arrested and hanged the perps, but refrained from religious persecution against anyone else.

    He was a pretty cool guy. If I were a king I'd want to be like him.

    He also commissioned a group of scholars to translate the bible from Hebrew and Greek into contemporary English.

  • I would like for you to consider the legend of the "White Buffalo Calf Woman" of the Lakota nation. I think that you will find her teachings and personal insights very informative. I am a member of this nation and I find her teachings on Native Spirituality to be the one that I follow today. But you need to make up your own mind on her. Have a good time researching her and her stories. Good Luck!

    Bernard Montgomery - Him and the 8th army were all that stood in the way of Hitler and the middle east's oil supply. His victory over Rommel in north africa changed the course of the war yet he is often overlooked in favour of Rommel of Patton for the title of World War Two's greatest military commander.

    Frank Aretas Haskell, who turned the tide of battle during Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg.

    The Union soldiers started to break and run, but Haskell chased them back to their posts.

    History could have turned out very differently.
