These are all authors who fought for freedom in some way. What's more, they helped to define it for the modern world. Some defined it literally, like Jefferson. Others did so symbolically, like Lincoln with his sacrifice. Gandhi offers a model for action, and so on.Who else would I add? Ben Franklin. Thomas Paine. Fredrick Douglass.
