Happy Birthday, Henry David Thoreau
Henry David Thoreau was born 200 years ago today.
"He is remembered for his attacks on the social institutions he considered immoral and for his faith in the religious significance of nature. The essay 'Civil Disobedience' is his most famous social protest. Walden, a study of Thoreau's experiment in living close to nature, is chiefly responsible for his literary reputation." [Source]
