Engraving entitled Stanley meets Livingstone. Showing Henry Morton Stanley greeting Dr. David Livingstone at a village in Ujiji, near Lake Tanganyika in present day Tanzania. Stanley's porters stand on the left, one at center carries an American flag; Livingstone stands on the right accompanied by Arabs and villagers, and large thatch-roofed huts fill the background.David Livingstone (1813-1873) was a Scottish Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society and an explorer in Africa. One of the most popular national heroes of the late 19th century in Victorian Britain, Livingstone had a mythic status, which operated on a number of levels Protestant missionary martyr, "rags to riches" inspiration, scientific investigator, explorer, imperial reformer and anti-slavery crusader. His fame as an explorer helped drive forward the obsession with discovering the sources of the River Nile that formed the culmination of the classic period of European geographical discovery and colonial penetration of the African continent. Livingstone died in 1873 from malaria and internal bleeding caused by dysentery. England wanted the body to give it a proper ceremony, but the tribe refused. They finally relented, but cut his heart out and put a note on the body that read, "You can have his body, but his heart belongs in Africa!".
