Today is the birthday of James Whitcomb Riley (1849 – 1916). He was an American writer, poet, and best selling author. Riley was known for his "uncomplicated, sentimental, and humorous" writing. Often writing his verses in dialect, his poetry caused readers to recall a nostalgic and simpler time in earlier American history.
