Samuel Colt Needs to have a monument in Washington D.C. “At just 22 years old, he proved himself to be a savvy businessman and promoter, but slow sales forced him to turn his attentions elsewhere” Samuel Colt could work hard at a young age and think like a smart business man. He could run and own a business well at a young age which showed how responsible he was.
Samuel Colt was independent and intelligent "Colt produced his own version of July 4th fireworks." Samuel Colt was smart enough to figure out how to make his own version of fire works and have them work properly. He was also independent because he didn't have youtube to show him how to make them. He had to think on his own and create his own custom design.
He thought outside of the box when it came to engineering."During the voyage, the 16-year-old became fascinated by how the ship’s wheel could spin or be locked in an affixed position through the use of a clutch. Reportedly, this observation sparked his idea for a revolving chamber capable of holding six bullets that could lock into place." Just by looking at a ship's wheel he thought of a gun. He thought of how he could incorporate the ship's design into the gun to make the chamber revolve itself when you pull the hammer back.
