Summary

Benjamin Franklin felt stifled at his brother's Boston print shop, so he ran away to seek his fortune in Philadelphia. Before long, he'd become one of the most famous people in the American colonies-a respected author, publisher, philosopher, scientist, and diplomat. Find out about the amazing accomplishments of this candlemaker's son, from his experiments with electricity to his contributions to the Constitution of the United States.
