Adding few to Anonymous answer.

Independence Movement:

1. Alluri Sitarama Raju : The one who gathered tribes and other people against British. This led to Rampa Rebellion ( 1922). British people trapped him, tied him to a tree and shot him.
[ I am glad that I studied in same school where he studied. He was a drop out though]

2. Tanguturi Prakasam: Another main leader who fought for our independence. In Simon Go back movement, when the commission visited to Madras, to clear the protests, British soldiers killed a man named Partha Sarathi. Tanguturi Prakasham pantulu came forward, grew enraged and tore open his shirt, baring his chest and daring the police to shoot at him.
