Trivia time: Remember Thomas Edison? Well, he was totally not born in New Hampshire. He was born in Milan, Ohio. BUT, he did go on camping trips in New Hampshire, along with a caravan of chauffeured vehicles complete with gas stove and refrigerator for high dining, and, of course, a generator to light up the camp. So basically, the light bulb was invented to enjoy the beauty of high-luxury camping in New Hampshire. Just in case you were wondering.
