Probably the most beautiful man of all time. Paul Newman never took a bad photo. He was the total package: nice, handsome, and talented. He had the biggest heart and that showed clear in his philanthropic and business endeavors.
At Havre de Grace, in the War of 1812, John O'Neil single handedly fought the British forces. For hours by himself he laid cannon fire upon the British. When the cannon knocked him down and injured him, he kept fighting; shooting his musket at his would-be captors until he passed out. His daughter negotiated his release the next day.
