A leader of the women's movement, Carrie Chapman Catt continued the work of her predecessors and pushed state and federal governments to grant women the right to vote. She organized rallies, lobbied the government, and fought against the male establishment until she helped achieve the suffragists' goal: the 19th amendment to the U. S. Constitution.
Douglas MacArthur was born into a military life, and like his father, he became a general in the U.S. Army. MacArthur rose to the highest levels of command in World War II and Korea and became Army chief of staff. Despite a career that lasted nearly 50 years, the general was relieved of duty by President Harry S. Truman in 1951. Today, many argue MacArthur is the greatest military leader in American history.
