Benjamin Franklin: Scientist, Inventor, Printer, and Statesman describes one of America’s leading figures during the American Revolution, discussing his many roles and influences throughout history. After moving to Philadelphia at age 17, Franklin began his journey “without the least Recommendation to or Knowledge of any Person in the Place, and with very little Money in [his] Pocket.” Soon after, Franklin became one of the most dynamic men of the American colonies, publishing Poor Richard’s Almanac as well as several other publications. When not writing or editing, Franklin conducted scientific experiments and established many local and national institutions, including a fire company, a library, and a university. He also provided a guiding hand to Thomas Jefferson as he wrote the Declaration of Independence, then served as the budding nation’s most important foreign diplomat during the Revolution. More than 300 years after his birth, Franklin remains among America’s most beloved founding fathers, making this volume an essential resource for students, teachers, and American history lovers everywhere.
