No6 - Edison the light bulb thief

'Swan, however, felt quite differently, as he watched Edison line his pockets with money made from his invention, and took Edison to Court for patent infringement. The British Courts stood by their patent award for the light bulb to Swan, and Edison lost the suit. The British Courts forced Edison, as part of the settlement, to name Swan a partner in his British electric company. Eventually, Edison managed to acquire all of Swans' interest in the newly renamed Edison and Swan United Electric Company.

Edison fared no better back home in the U.S., where the U.S. Patent Office already ruled, on October 8, 1883, that Edison's patents were invalid, because he based them upon the earlier art of a gentleman named William Sawyer.'

Santos Dumont invented the first plane to take off by itself and to fly using only its power and devices.

The wright brothers invented a "plane" that had to be projected to the sky to fly, I don't know if this is exactly a plane...

Could be better. 02

The choices are pretty random (because what is a truly great moment?) and the events are by far not equally important (independence and aviation vs world cup and iPhone?). Also, some of these do not only belong to American history, but are world history. For example, the Berlin Wall was not in the States and the two World Wars are called like this for a reason.
