    Depends on the historical era and what sort of unit your class is in.

    Ones that immediately come to mind are:

    Ancient Greece: Plato vs. Epicurus

    Ancient Rome: Gladiator vs. Senator

    1400s-1500s: Martin Luther vs. Erasmus

    1700s: Catharine II of Russia vs. George III of England

    1800s: Queen Victoria vs. any U.S. president of the era.

    1900s: So very many opportunities here. Hitler vs. Stalin or vs. Mussolini, for example.

    I think Englands Queen Elizabeth I compared to Mary Queen of Scots would be an interesting choice. Sharp personalities in a pivotal time in History.

    Random figures: Alexander the Great and General George S. Patton :)

    who are you interested in?

    Ben Franklin - developed pot bellied stove (eye think) bifocal glasses

    lending library concept - electricity by kite

    and electricity into Thomas Edison - super inventor

    developed electricity for cities - his bulbs at the home in Ft Myers FL

    are still burning today (just one of thousands of inventions)

    Thank Goodness the light bulb makers corrected his error

    and they burn out more frequently - giving them more profits
