<h2><font size="2"color="black"><i>"Our virtues and our failings are inseparable,<br>like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more."</i></font>
<div class="container content">
  <p><b><u>Nikola Tesla</u></b> was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1856--</font></b><br><i>Nikola Tesla Is Born</i><br>
Tesla was born to Serbian parents in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire near the town of Gospić, in the territory of modern-day Croatia.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1875--</font></b><br><i>Tesla Enrolls In Austrian Polytechnic</i><br>
At the Polytechnic school Tesla began his studies in mechanical and electrical engineering.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1882--</font></b><br><i>Tesla Begins Working For Continental Edison</i><br>
In 1882 Tesla moved to Paris, to work as an engineer for the Continental Edison Company, designing improvements to electric equipment brought overseas from Edison's ideas.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1884--</font></b><br><i>Tesla Arrives In The USA</i><br>On 6 June 1884, Tesla first arrived in the United States, in New York City with little besides a letter of recommendation from Charles Batchelor, a former employer.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1885--</font></b><br><i>Tesla Quits Working For Edison</i><br>Tesla claims he was offered $50,000 if he redesigned Edison's inefficient motor and generators, making an improvement in both service and economy. Several months after Edison employed him, Tesla announced that his work was successfully completed. When Tesla asked to be paid, however, Edison seemed astonished. He explained that the offer of $50,000 had been made in jest. "When you become a full-fledged American you will appreciate an American joke," Edison said. Shocked and disgusted, Tesla immediately resigned.
<br><br><img src="" height="250" class="img-border2">
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1887--</font></b><br><i>War Of The Current Era Begins!
</i><br>During the initial years of electricity distribution, Edison's direct current was the standard for the United States and Edison was not inclined to lose all his patent royalties.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1893--</font></b><br><i>Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse power the World's Columbian Exposition</i><br>The International Exposition was held in a building which was devoted to electrical exhibits. All the exhibits were from commercial enterprises. Thomas Edison, Brush, Western Electric, and Westinghouse had exhibits. The public observed firsthand the qualities and abilities of alternating current power.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1901--</font></b><br><i>Construction begins on Tesla's Wardenclyffe Tower</i><br>In June 1902, Tesla moved his laboratory operations from his Houston Street laboratory to Wardenclyffe. However, in 1903, when the tower structure was near completion, it was still not yet functional due to last-minute design changes. Tesla intended for the tower to demonstrate how electrical energy could be transmitted without the need for power lines. A story has arisen that the power consumption could not be metered and Morgan, who could not foresee any financial gain from providing free electricity to everyone, balked. 
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1915--</font></b><br><i>Tesla and Edison ignored by Nobel Prize committee
</i><br>Thomas Edison and Tesla were mentioned as potential laureates in 1915, but it is believed that due to their animosity toward each other neither was ever given the award, despite their enormous scientific contributions. There is some indication that each sought to minimize the other's achievements and right to win the award; that both refused to ever accept the award if the other received it first; and that both rejected any possibility of sharing it—as was rumored in the press at the time. Tesla had a greater financial need for the award than Edison: in 1916, he filed for bankruptcy.
<br><br><b><font size="6">--1943--</font></b><br><i>Nikola Tesla Dies
</i><br>Tesla died of heart failure alone in room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel, on 7 January 1943.
