Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America and a man of many exceptional talents. Together with Thomas Jefferson he wrote the Declaration of Independence. In the field of Physical Science he worked on the theory of electricity and worked out the lightning conductor among other achievements. As a statesman he helped write the Constitution of the United States.

"If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing." ~ B. Franklin [1]

Franklin wrote well and did very important things. His face is even on the $100 Dollar bill. [1]

Franklin wanted Exodus to be America's official seal.[2] But it just did not happen.

Franklin wrote a letter to Josiah Quincy on September 11 1783.[3] Which was 218 years to the day 9/11 happened.
