The 100 Most Influential Americans. Do You Agree?
American history is loaded with influential people who've helped shape our nation—men and women, exalted and humble, rural and urban, liberal and conservative, native and immigrant. But of those individuals, how do you determine who's the most influential? Is Teddy Roosevelt more influential than Ronald Reagan? Or is Harriet Tubman more influential than Walt Disney? How do we measure "influence" and say with confidence that one person exerts it more than another?

In The Britannica Guide to the 100 Most Influential Americans: The People Who Shaped the United States (Running Press), the editors of the Encyclopedia Britannica have compiled a guide of the 100 most influential Americans who, in their eyes, have played crucial roles in the development of American civilization from the colonial period to the present. The purpose of this book is to acquaint readers with the achievements of some remarkable people and to stimulate discussion about them and others. No list of notable people can possibly be definitive or canonical. This list is not an end, only a beginning.

Cast your vote for who you think is the most influential American ever.
