Legacy

am very late with homework!! needed to do some research ;)

I believe he, Lajos Kossuth a freedom fighter, was the most named-after person in Hungary. Initially, I wanted to search for the numbers of streets in his name in Hungary. But at the top of the hits was a link to US web site!! Do you know that his legacy is also widely honoured in the United states? There are about 20 streets/avenues/roads named after him around the US. read here.

I had not heard of him before. Thanks for the information. This is a very pleasing photo of the statue with the orange leaves radiating light.

Thanks for the information link. I learned something today. I have to admit to my ignorance of history.
This is why I appreciate the blog and bloggers so much. Keep up the good work.

i guess there is no settle in Hungary without Kossuth or Petőfi (a famous poet from the same ages). If someone ask you in a Hungarian village or town or city where are you going to...and you dont want to answer..just say: to the Kossuth street:)
