Social Studies: Model Trains

Flower pots with battery powered lights, Joshua L. Cowen thought they were a good idea. But other people who had already thought of the idea of battery powered lights were hiring lawyers and threatening to sue.

So Cowen gave up on the idea. Conrad Hubert took the idea and invented the flashlight, he raked in millions.

Cowen after making a electric motor for an miniature fan found they fit well in small trains. So Joshua Lionel Cowen made model trains.
