Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790) was America’s original Renaissance Man. Most noted as one of the country’s Founding Fathers, the first Postmaster General, and a statesman, he was also an accomplished writer, printer, scientist, inventor, and musician. He was quite simply “The First American.” Morse’s entertaining biography of the great man has been an enduring classic for well over a century.
