Yes, July 4th is America's birthday, but other very notable people share that date. So, let's salute those with the more interesting names. It makes for quite a diverse little birthday party -- from Nathaniel Hawthorne, born in 1804, to First Daughter Malia Obama, born in 1998. But we won’t be including three who erroneously claimed the date as their own -- composer George "born on the Fourth of July" M. Cohan, MGM’s Louis B. Mayer and Louis Armstrong, whose real date of birth was August 4th.
