Benjamin Banneker was a largely self-taught mathematician, astronomer, and surveyor in the late 1700s. He helped survey Washington DC. His work was praised by Thomas Jefferson. I (@valeriedperry) learned of Benjamin Banneker this summer when a National Park scavenger hunt took me to Benjamin Banneker Park near L'Enfant Plaza is Washington DC. This cabin stands on a property where he lived in Maryland. •
