David Livingstone

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1873 of David Livingstone, Scottish explorer and missionary. There is some confusion over whether he died on May 1 or May 4. His heart is buried in Africa.

Eyewitness to History has a report of Livingstone's discovery of Victoria Falls. Galenfrysinger has photos. There is a site here that is dedicated to him and fucuses on his medical work. Works by Livingstone are available online.
