Our significant person that we are learning about in History is Louie Braille.
Louie Braille is still significant today because he invented a system which supported people who are blind. When Braille was young he was sent to a special school for children who were blind. However, there were only 14 books available to read. Louis Braille decided to invent a new system made from six dots. He invented the Braille system at only fifteen!
