"Benjamin Franklin was a natural leader and helped to write the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. As one of America's most versatile of the Founding Fathers, Ben began his career in his brother's printing press. He wrote articles for the New England Courant and is credited with the creation of 'Poor Richard's Almanac.' Ben's daring scientific discoveries which included the conductivity of electricity, performed by flying a kite in a storm, progressed society significantly. We still use some of his inventions today like bifocals, lightning rods, and the American public library system. Dedicating himself to the advancement of American society, Benjamin Franklin is one of our most important historical figures." -- Page [4] cover.
