Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin is often called the "Father of Evolution," but there was much more to the man than just his scientific papers and literary works. In fact, Charles Darwin was much more than just the guy who came up with the Theory of Evolution. His life and story is an interesting read. Did you know he helped shape what we know now as the discipline of Psychology? He also has a sort of "double" connection to Abraham Lincoln and didn't have to look past his own family reunion to find his wife. Let's take a look at some interesting facts that usually aren't found in textbooks about the man behind the Theory of Evolution and Natural Selection.
