Franklin’s life is full of charming stories which all young men should know----how he sold books in Boston, and became the guest of kings in Europe; how he was made Major General Franklin, only to quit because, as he said,he was no soldier, and yet helped to organize the army that stood before the trained troops of England and Germany.

This poor Boston boy, without a day’s schooling, became master of six languages and never stopped studying; this neglected apprentice conquered the lightning, made his name famous, received degrees and diplomas from many colleges, and became forever remembered as “Doctor Franklin”, philosopher, scientist and political leader.

He built America, for what America is today is largely due to the management, the forethought, the wisdom, and the ability of Benjamin Franklin. He belongs to the world, but especially he belongs to America.
