According to my Rifleman 'rithmatic , Lucas was born about the early to mid-1840's. Let's name some real or fictional people who were roughly Lucas's she. I'll start: Scarlett O'Hara.

Friedrich Nietzsche was born in 1844. It's kind of strange thinking of him being the same age as Lucas. . .

A well appreciated composer, Edvard Grieg, was also born around that time.

Ok, Dana. You started something.
1847 was a very interesting year! Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell were born not even a month apart.
Jesse James was also born this year.
And Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula

I saw the new David Copperfield movie today-excellent. Probably some historical/ literary license, but David Copperfield was about three years older than Lucas.

I thought the film was great! Hugh Laurie deserves an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Mr. Dick.

Awful confession of a bookworm: I have never read David Copperfield. However, I have read Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities, and Bleak House.

In addition to Edvard Grieg, composers Anton Dvorak and Piotr Tchaikovsky were also roughly Lucas's age.

Grieg, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky . . . such wonderful composers! Let's add Mendelssohn, Chopin, and Schubert and you have a list of my favorite Romantic composers. I'm so in love with Romantic music that my piano instructor banned me from playing any more Romantic pieces until I had branched out into other styles/periods. 😛
