A bit about John Neal ...

John Neal (August 25, 1793 June 20, 1876) is best remembered by his literary works, though limiting his legacy to the field is unfair. He was a man of diverse talents and objectives, many of which were pioneering in his day. His writing style was seminal in the new American style, whereby he refused to emulate British authors by writing strictly in a clean tone, instead writing more as he spoke and allowing his characters to speak gruffly, if the story called for it. However, his style was also undisciplined and often rambling, so despite their period significance, his literary work has drifted into obscurity. He was also an early women's rights advocate, prohibitionist, temperance advocate, accomplished lawyer, art and literary critic, boxer, and architect.
