Nikola Tesla was born on July, 10th 1856 and died on January 7th 1943. In light of Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla was almost forgotten, but he was the true Master of Lightening.

Nikola Tesla was a visionary genius of the 1st magnitude which history nearly overlooked as he was resented by Thomas Edison, Robbed by Marconi and George Westinghouse, and abandoned J. P. Morgan.

Without the genius of Nikola Tesla the United States may have never grown into the super power it is today.
