A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Friday, September 2nd

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here. SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS! Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience. And now, without further ado, we give you… TODAY’S PUZZLE:

The war that gave us the phrase “Theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die” also gave the world a nurse credited with starting professional nursing. What was her name?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (HIGHLIGHT TO SEE):

Search [man who invented photography]. Find no single individual is credited with its invention, but the daguerreotype was the first commercially successful photographic process. Search [daguerreotype]. Find Louis Daguerre invented it. Search [Louis Daguerre]. Find this photo.
