  • Giuseppe Garibaldi
    July 4, 1807 - June 2, 1882
    Part 6 of 7: Legacy
    Continued from part 5

    Garibaldi's popularity, his skill at rousing the masses, and his military exploits are all credited with making the unification of Italy possible.

    He died on Caprera, where he was interred. Five ships of the Italian Navy have been named after him, among which the current flagship, the aircraft carrier Giuseppe Garibaldi.

    It is said that the Garibaldi biscuit is named for the famous commander, who gave it to his men. His red-shirted volunteers also lent his name to the garibaldi, a North American fish with a distinctive orange color. A pub located in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire, England is also named after the biscuit or, according to some, for the general.
