January 27, 1832: Lewis Carroll is Born

Lewis Carroll grew up to become the author Alice in Wonderland. When he was 30, he and his friend rowed the 3 young daughters of Henry Lidell five miles down the River thames.  On the way, he made up a story about a bored girl named Alice who went on adventures.  He also wrote the beloved nonsense poem, Jabberwocky, and the sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass.
