Sarah’s Top Five Unsung Heroes in History

Talk about reliving the roller coaster of the Space Race. Timeless fans this show gets more interesting (crazy) every week, but one of my favorite aspects is seeing the people they highlight in the past that aren’t necessarily names everyone knows off the top of their head. (IE Abe Lincoln, Davy Crockett, etc. )

Katherine Johnson’s work was critical to the Space Race, and the fact that an upcoming movie is going to also spotlight her in Hidden Figures is a happy coincidence personally. On that note, it made me think about the unsung heroes we have in history that take a little more than a Google search to learn about but are all well worth the effort.

Without further ado, here are my top five unsung heroes in history!


People are capable of terrible things, but honestly when you take a look back at history the amount of good individuals who worked hard and stood up for what they believed in even if they didn’t get the recognition they deserved are the very definition of inspirational. Timeless, thank you for reminding me of that.


How about you Timeless fans? Who are your top unsung heroes in history?
