Tom's Challenge- the riddler 3




Well this one is simple, making up for lost time. Due to the election and anniversaries and life in general, my challenge has been a bit slow to come about.

So here it is, nice and simple:

He mocked cotton in silence,
When lead was mightier than swords or pens.

Who are the three people this riddle is referring to?

I think you underestimate the simplicity of some of your readers. Email the answer, right?

Silly Quilly,

The only place I announced it was at Doug's because everybody seemed to be there.

I chose the most popular site that we all seem to frequent ikn order word out fast.

You can still get second place if you are fast. T

Tom, I'm not going to be playing today - but I'll be back to see your answer/background on the answer. I really enjoy the way you flesh out your response...I'm getting a little education here, of little known facts! (They'll look good on my resume!)
