The future winner in two wars, was born November 30, 1874 in Blenheim ancestral castle, which belonged to an ancient race Churchill, his father – Lord Randolph – the third son of the seventh Duke of Marlborough and is therefore not inherited this high-sounding title, which passed in England only the eldest son.

Although the monographic character of this message, obviously limits the analysis, can not mention the companion, almost hidden from the railway, which was the Telegraph. Before the Internet phenomenon today, was revalued that nearly silent railway companion, although it is worth commenting that to Juan Bautista Alberdi, said accompaniment do not pass unnoticed, taking into account the poetry which he dedicated them both.
