(TruthSeekerDaily) I was doing a bunch of research on Nikola Tesla for some projects going on and came across this wicked image set that sums up Tesla’s story and the challenges that took place with Thomas Edison. The artist who did the work can be found at [theoatmeal.com] It’s and awesome site!
Nikola Tesla emigrated to the US in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant. His work in the formative years of electric power development was involved in a corporate alternating current/direct current "War of Currents" as well as various patent battles.
