$125 is a small price to pay to preserve a piece of history and to honor one of the greatest engineers that ever lived.

I always wonder why we do not consider Tesla in league of great engineers and scientists. He is usually portrayed as a crazy and self-centric businessman.

Although I could argue that Nikola Tesla needs no monument because of all his brilliant technical contributions, I nonetheless feel strongly that it is very appropriate that a monument should be built for the benefit of people who are not aware of his many contributions to our everyday life. He was unfortunately eclipsed by Thomas Edison and Alexander Bell, both of whom were as much politicians as they were inventors.

Many Forgotten Innovators

Unfortunately there are many forgotten inventors of that era. While few know who Tesla is fewer still would recognize Reginald Fessenden. He was the first to have two way trans-Atlantic wireless (Marconi was only on direction), first to transmit voice trans-Atlantic, was involved witht he development of sonar and television.
