    In my opinion, the greatest American Inventor was Thomas Edison. He is the man who came up with the idea of a light bulb. He is the who made first video. It was a short video of a man just sneezing, but still it was a funny little video. He came up with several other things as well.

    Inventors Orville and Wilbur Wright took a great interest in flight and invention from an early age. Running a successful bicycle business afforded the Wright brothers enough income to follow their dream of inventing a flying machine.

    I don't think Edison was the greatest, even though he was the most prolific.

    I think Nikola Tesla was the greatest, for his unselfishness and generosity toward humanity. He wanted to give us free energy to empower us all, but the robber barons wouldn't have it. They shut him down. And, when he died, the government stole his papers. He was originally Serbian, but immigrated to America.
