Benjamin Franklin

Founding Father, Scientist, Inventor, and Politician

One of America's Most Influential Founding Fathers

Franklin earned the title of "The First American" for his early and indefatigable campaigning for Colonial Unity, initially as an author and spokesman in London for several colonies. As the first United States Ambassador to France, he exemplified the emerging American nation. He did a lot of amazing thigs for America to become its own nation.

He Was A Citizen of The World.

Franklin was not only an inventor, but he also was one of the most influential diplomats of his time. When most people barely traveled 20 miles from their place of birth, Franklin traversed the Atlantic eight times and visited 10 countries, creating treaties with Great Britain, France, Spain, and Sweden, among others. In fact he hopscotched around the civilized world so much that he spent 27 of his 84 years of life overseas.
