Tesla as herald of the new

When historians look back at the 20th Century Nikola Tesla will definitely be a prominent feature. If, for Lincoln, the Gettysburg address is what is most prominent, and the 13th Amendment to the Constitiuton of the United States, then for Tesla, I sense it will be the scene of him sitting in his beloved armchair watching lightning storms as he penetrated the nature of lightning, its relationship to the sun, how it impacts the atmosphere and the earth. From what I have read of him, it was what literally electrified him the most.
