WHAT DID THOMAS EDISON INVENT?

You might be asking yourself what did Thomas Edison invent? Thomas Edison invented many many things such as: The electric light bulb, Motion Picture, Electrographic, Etc. Thomas Edison was mostly know for the electric light bulb because that is what changed the world. It helped out america very much. If you can tell if we had no such thing as light I don't think we would be alive now.

WHAT WAS EDISON'S CHILDHOOD

He was born on February 11, 1847 He was born in a seven children family and not very rich. Sadly he lost his hearing to a train accident. His father was a political person from Canada who was exiled and kicked out of Canada and they we're forced to move to the U.S. His family moved to Port Huron Michigan which started there life off.

MY REACTION

My reaction to all of this was that I was very surprised that Thomas Edison was not that rich in the beginning. I thought his family would be wealthy and more suited, but it is sad that he had to lose his hearing in a train accident. The worst thing is that his dad got exiled from Canada and didn't get to live there his life.
