Nobody know the answer?

Another clue, the event in Birmingham, Alabama was a peaceful protest by Martin Luther King that got ugly when the chief of police sent in men with water cannons and dogs to attack them.

Here is another question, there are two parts to it, each worth 1 point.

The previous question is still standing and has been upped to a bonus question worth 4 points.

Of whom was it said that he was "the most brilliant American statesman who ever lived, posessing the loftiest and keenest intellect of his time" (1) and who was it who said it? (1)

Of whom did Garry Wills say was "probably the most influential teacher in the history of American education."

*Hint* He was a teacher at Princeton (known then as the College of New Jersey) and under his tutelage they produced a U.S. President, a Vice-President, twenty-one Senators, twenty-nine Congressmen and twelve state Governors.

Oh yes, and bonus marks will be awarded for any names of those produced.

So, a bonus mark for the President, the Vice-President, each of the Senators, Congressmen and Governors.

If you name all that is a hefty 65 points which that question is worth.

*Ding Ding* Coooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrect. Congratulations Liberty.

For that you receive 3 points. I think I may have the number of Senators wrong actually, I believe it may have only been 20, with Burr possibly included so it wouldn't be worth as many as I thought.

ATFFL, I am not sure he did teach Patrick Henry though I may be wrong, upon reading a biography it says he was home-schooled so I don't know.

In the interest of full disclosure I knew it compared him to Abraham Lincoln and looked it up to get teh wording right.

I remembered it as "The civil rights movement should thank god for Bull Connor.  He's done more for them than any man since Lincoln."

But I first knew it form Bartlett, you are right on that.

I actually was only looking for "the civil rights movement should thank God for Bull Connor" so your answer is fine.
