Bunn was involved in the making of Lincoln as President, in the success of the Illinois Watch Company, and set the stage for Illinois-based companies like the Sangamo Electric Co., well-known into recent times around the world.

Read of a time when industrial pioneers were settling a frontier. Jacob Bunn's life has had a global impact. He left companies and a legacy, and should serve as a model for the contemporary business world.
