(1825–1896) was a Polish writer, independence activist and an Austrian spy. He was convicted in 1864 of espionage by an underground court in the January Uprising. There is a consensus that this accomplished writer is today a forgotten figure of Polish literature, virtually erased from national consciousness (one of the "absent greats""wielcy nieobecni").

The 18th-century poet and fabulist Ignacy Krasicki, who favored "pierniki", wrote of them in his celebrated poem, "Monachomachia". In 1854, Adam Pług wrote of a father returning from a fair and bringing his children a gift of gingerbread. Zygmunt
, in his "Gniazdo Nieczujów", spoke of it as an exceeding noble food.
He has been described as one of the "absent greats" of Polish literature, an able writer across several genres, including the "gawęda szlachecka". One of the most important works of
was "Olbrachtowi rycerze" ("Olbracht and the Knights"; Paris, 1889), a historical novel in three volumes written, it is said, in response to the famous "Trilogy" of Henryk Sienkiewicz, a writer with whom in his day he was esteemed as an equal. Although published in his mature period, "Olbrachtowi rycerze" was likely written when
was in his twenties. In his early teens he penned a dissertation on Cicero in Latin, his first literary work, and when about 20 wrote a drama in five acts. Kaczkowski's remarkable faithfulness to the regional, detailed, ungeneralised realities of the "szlachta" whose life he depicted having been a merit noticed and praised by informed readers, one that made him sensationally sought-after as a publicist at an early age and nationally famous as the author of some fifty books before he reached the age of 32.)
was the editor-in-chief of a Lwów daily, a town in which he had acquired a reputation for the number of mistresses he had.
About 1580, Jedrzej
owned the village. In 1638, Kasper Działynski, Bishop of Chełm, donated the village to the Jesuits in Bydgoszcz. The parish included: Dobiesławice, Glinno, Kaczkowo, Mierogonowice, Płonkowko, Rojewo, Sciborze, Topola, and Wierzchosławice. These villages appeared in the parish later: Dąbie; Glinienko (alias Glinki or Klein Glinnen); Godzieba, Janska Wies; Jedrejowo; Jezuicka Struga; Jurek; Kaczkowska Nowa Wies (alias Kaczkower Neudorf); Kamienny Brod; Kepa; Lukaszewo, Racławice; Wolanow; and Wybranowo. In 1873 the parish numbered 1163 souls.
was also a secret agent working for years on end in the 1860s for the Imperial Austria, one of the Partitioning Powers. His cover was blown in December 1863 when a partly encrypted diplomatic cable sent from Lwów to the central government in Vienna by Count Mensdorff-Pouilly, the Austrian steward of Galicia, was intercepted at the Lwów post-office and deciphered by the Polish underground, supposedly revealing the surname "
" (encoded with a monoalphabetic substitution cipher, without the first name being indicated) in the context of certain payments to be made to a person of that name. Although ready to defend himself,
was put on trial "in absentia" by the provincial Lwów organs of the insurrectionist Provisional National Government of Polandhis judges unwilling to confront him face to face and thereby to reveal their identitiesin seeming violation of the principle "audi alteram partem" of natural justice. By this authority, and in this way, he was declared guilty of espionage and sentenced to banishment from all Polish lands ("on pain of death") in January 1864, at the age of 38.
complied and left Polish territory within four days, as commanded by the writ of the sentence, but he never ceased to maintain his innocence, vigorously denying the charges levelled against him even in print, that the degree of harm caused by defamation was "exponentially proportional to the degree of fame originally enjoyed by the victim". Indeed, the verdict against him was itself very promptly rescinded on appeal by the highest organs of the (underground) national government in Warsaw, and although a review of the case never took place, he lived out his days, chiefly in Paris, a man exonerated by default. After his death, on his tombstone at the Champeaux cemetery in Montmorency there were inscribed, in Polish and in French, the words: "A combattu toute sa vie par la plume pour la cause de sa Patrie" (All his life fought with his pen for his Fatherland). However, after the collapse of the Habsburg Monarchy in the following century, during the interbellum period when the secret archives of the state by then no longer in existence were finally opened to researchers, his role as a secret agent for the Austrians was indeed unequivocally demonstrated by the documents in his dossier examined by Eugeniusz Barwiński, the results of whose investigations were published in book form in 1920. There is a consensus of opinion that this accomplished writer is today a forgotten figure of Polish literature, virtually erased from national consciousness (one of the "absent greats""wielcy nieobecni"), on account of the non-literary aspects of his biography.

, Piotr Metz, Piotr Stelmach, Grzegorz Miecugow or Kuba Strzyczkowski. When Marek Niedźwiecki left for Radio Złote Przeboje, Piotr Baron became the host.

While Wiśniowiecki's portrayal (as a major secondary character) in the first part of Henryk Sienkiewicz's trilogy, "With Fire and Sword" which describes the history of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth during the Uprising, was rather positive, criticism of his persona intensified, in particular from Sienkiewicz detractors such as Zygmunt
and Olgierd Górka. The 1930s saw a first modern historical work about Wiśniowiecki, by . In the era of the People's Republic of Poland, the Communist Party's ideology dictated that all historians present him as an "enemy of the people", although this began to be relaxed after 1965. Widacki, analyzing the work of other historians notes that Władysław Czapliński was rather sympathetic to Wiśniowiecki, while Paweł Jasienica was critical of him.
After Poland regained her independence in 1918, the internal design of the castle was yet again modified. Since the 1920s it housed several parts of the Warsaw NCO school. The main staircase was restored to its 18th-century representative design. An interesting feature of the staircase was a set of stone tablets placed there May 15, 1927, commemorating the names of all known Polish military medics who perished in wars between 1797 and 1920. Additional tablets commemorated Karol
, Zdzisław Lubaszewski and a sculpture by Edward Wittig commemorating all military medics. After the Polish Defensive War of 1939, the Red Cross organized a school for WIA soldiers. The castle was burnt out and damaged by the Germans following the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.
Michael Taylor of Mill Valley developed the Pistol formation as a complete offense (called the "Shotgun I" at that time) in 1999 while playing softball. Michael's teammate was a college football coach at Division III Ohio Northern University named Tom
, and during a conversation, he mentioned that his team needed to go into a new direction because his running back was quick, but his quarterback was tall and slow. Armed with this new idea of Shotgun I, Michael spent weeks developing new formations and schemes as a way of maintaining a downhill running game, while allowing his quarterback to be comfortable in the pass game. The plays worked; the backfield set was exclusively two back and included a full complement of runs to both the I back and the offset back (aligned next to the quarterback).
Francis de Sales Lewental was a Polish Jewish publisher; born at Włocławek, Congress Poland, 1839; died at Wiesbaden on 24 September 1902. In 1862 Lewental, the son of poor Jewish parents, bought with his accumulated savings the press of the Warsaw publisher (died 1859), and began his career with the "Kalendarz Ludowy", a popular almanac, which he continued until 1866. In 1865, in conjunction with others, he founded "", an illustrated weekly, which in the next year became his exclusive property. Under Lewental's management and under the editorship of , "Kłosy" became the most widely circulated illustrated weekly in Poland, and contributed in no small measure to the popularizing of Polish art and to the development of Polish wood engraving. In 1871 Lewental bought the "Kółko Domowe", a home magazine, and transformed it into the popular "Tygodnik Romansów i Powieści" (discontinued in 1900). Lewental was the proprietor also of the "Świt", edited for a few years by Maria Konopnicka. In 1871, also, he issued an edition of the works of Korzeniowski (better-known in the English-speaking world as Joseph Conrad), which proved so popular that it led later to similar editions of the works of Kraszewski, Kremer, Rzewuski, Skarbek, Fredro, Syrokomla, Eliza Orzeszkowa,
, Bałucki, etc.
