Horatio Nelson born, 1758

Lord Horatio Nelson was born, 29 September 1758, in Burnham Thorpe, Norfolk. He died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, in the midst of his victory there.

Nelson is known to the English-speaking world, surely, as one of the great English heroes. As history itself is under attack, and our great men as part of it, I think it’s good to commemorate the lives and accomplishments of the great men our forefathers’ civilization has produced.
